Ginger is my latest obsession, never mind the health benefits, the flavor alone is amazing. A warm, spicy, almost tangy flavor,  just makes my taste buds explode in magical ways. I like fresh grated ginger, it gives a strong punch to any drink -weather its a hot tea or a delicious cocktail, ginger is a must!  I was experimenting with flavors for a sponsored post I had scored with a big brand company, when I discovered my new passion for a ginger/lime cocktail. Now its become my favorite holiday cocktail -and its what I will serve at our next holiday party. So I wanted to share the recipe with you.

You know me though, I have to present this new Cocktail in a really cute way for my party, so I started experimenting with my bar cart!  I found these amazingly cute wine glasses at Target, they have a spectacular gold bottom, and I just had to invest in them. I will include the link at the bottom of the post, if you are interested in purchasing them! The touch of gold went really well with the color of the cocktail, it was a match , they were meant to be!!

I added a couple of other decor touches to the cart, mostly things that went with the table decor. I really like to style my bar cart similar to my table-setting, I feel like they play well together and by doing so- it brings cohesiveness to the theme of the party.

But enough decor talk, let’s get down to the reason we are all here – the cocktail. I have included the recipe below for you to enjoy. There are two ways you can prepare this recipe and it is really up to you. There is a short cut -using the canned soda or you can use fresh ingredients. Honestly, I have tried both and they are both amazing! Hope you enjoy this recipe!
