Build a Better Bar Cart: Drink it! Ginger Slipper


Friday confessional: I am secretly compiling all my home grown cocktail recipes for a soon to be published book (in my dreams!). Until then, I will continue to share them with you in our ever expanding Build a Better Bar Cart series. 


My liqueur du jour is Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur. Little bit sweet, tiny bit spicy, all around delicious. It's the perfect addition to classic cocktails, and just what you will crave on a chilly winter night.


This is a recipe born out of a few taste trials by husband and I while snowed in.


Ginger Slipper


2 oz cognac
1/2 oz rich simple syrup
1 oz Domaine de Canton
1 tsp lemon juice


Shake all ingredients over ice, strain into a champagne coupe, and top with champagne. If you want to get fancy, toss some crystallized ginger into the coupe/flute and let is dance around in the bubbles while you sip.
