The Ginger Ninja

For ginger lovers - an elegant, modern twist on traditional ginger beer recipes. A winning combination of warming ginger, cool mint and zesty lemon would be wonderful as a welcome drink at a country wedding setting or as accompaniment to Asian dishes, curries and light meals.

  • 25g peeled and sliced fresh ginger
  • 5 tsp (25ml) water
  • 1 cup (250ml) soda water
  • small handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 1 small lime, sliced
  • 2 cups (500ml) ZARI Lifestyle White
  • 5 tsp (25ml) fresh lemon juice
  • ice, to serve

1.) Use a food processor or a stick blender to blitz the ginger and water together until combined. Strain through a sieve and discard the pulp.

2.) Add 2½ teaspoons of the ginger concentrate to a large jug. Add the soda water, fresh mint leaves and lime slices.

3.) Top up with ZARI Lifestyle White and the lemon juice. Stir gently, then serve with ice.

TIP: Add an extra teaspoon of ginger concentrate to the jug for an even stronger flavour punch!

Servings: 4

Food pairing suggestions:

A winning mocktail/appetizer combo can make or break any event.  For classy finger food to accompany the ZARI Ginger Ninja at weddings and events we recommend wholesome cheesy potato poppers, sweet chicken bites, mini wraps and goats cheese bruschetta for hungry guests. When is comes to toasting, raise a flute of classic ZARI to cheers to the health of your favourite couple.
