This is a fun holiday cocktail but you do need to like the flavor of ginger because it’s packed full of it.  Don’t confuse this ginger beer with the stuff you get out of the store because it’s definitely an adult cocktail as you will understand when you read the recipe.  Make sure everything is really cold when you mix the ingredients together.     Enjoy!!!  For comments/questions email ramona@lowfatdivablog.com

Ginger Beer

1 piece fresh ginger

4 cups ginger ale, chilled (I use Canada Dry)

2 – 12oz bottles of amber beer chilled (your preference)

1/2 cup dark rum (Sailor Jerry’s – is great)

Grate the ginger using the large grater side of a box grater.  Squeeze the juice from the grated ginger into a small bowl to equal 2 tsp. throw out the solids.

Stir together in a pitcher the ginger ale, beer, dark rum and the juice from the ginger.  Chill and serve in chilled beer glasses.
