Pineapple Ginger Martini

It’s been a while since I’ve used my ginger liqueur in a cocktail so I decided to shake up something new this week. I created this spin on a pineapple martini using gin and ginger liqueur for a warming spice note.

The result is this light and refreshing cocktail. It’s sweet but not TOO sweet. And it gets a little effervescence from club soda added at the end.

This cocktail isn’t too strong so you don’t have to worry about it sneaking up on you. It would make a good signature party drink for a tropical theme party or a yellow or gold party.

I’ve traditionally used vodka as my clear liquor for mixing drinks, but I’ve recently discovered a penchant for gin instead. Of course, you can substitute the gin for vodka if you like!

Gin and Domaine de Canton cocktail

If you haven’t tried ginger flavored liqueur yet, the time is now! My brand of choice is Domaine de Canton. It’s produced in France and I first noticed how pretty the bottle looks. Then I realized how tasty the liqueur is!

What does Domaine de Canton taste like?

The simple answer is of course, ginger. But that simple answer is not sufficient for this liqueur. While there are other brands available, I like this one because it has a very true raw ginger taste. In other words it doesn’t taste fake.

It’s also not quite as sweet as King’s Ginger brand, which is a big plus for me. But be aware, a little goes a long way with ginger liqueur. It’s bold and can overpower a drink if you pour too much.

If you want to make a large batch ahead of time you can convert the measures below into cups rather than ounces. That’s what I always do when I want to serve it from a pitcher or pretty dispenser.
