Happy Hump Day everyone!
For this week’s quickie cocktail we dove into the archives to pull out a delicious drink that just so happens to utilize a liquor we are featuring on the blog for the very first time!
Say hello to Stone’s Original Ginger and The Cobblestone!
Stone’s Original Ginger is a ginger wine–a fortified wine made using ginger and raisins combined with brandy. It is, in our humble opinion, completely delicious. It is very drinkable and can easily be served neat or over ice, but there are also some great mixed drink recipes as well. The Cobblestone, one of the official recipes Stone’s acknowledges for use with the product, is as simple as they come and totally delicious. Perfect for a Hump Day Quickie Cocktail, if we do say so ourselves!
For The Cobblestone, you will need:
- 2 oz Stone’s Original Ginger
- Approx. 4-6 oz hard cider
Grab your ingredients plus your jiggers, bar spoon, and serving glass.
Fill your glass with ice, and pour your 2 oz of ginger wine directly in there!
Now top it off with the hard cider of your choice. We used a pear cider, but the apple varieties work perfectly as well.
Now give it a quick stir, and you’re ready to go!
See, we told you, as simple as they come.
