Mixology Wednesday: Kaffir Lime Sour With Ginger…

On Easter, the Partner and I hosted an Easter potluck for a group of our friends.  Everyone brought a little something and I ended up making coconut cream cupcakes but what was the hit of the party were the delicious cocktails the other half was mixing at the bar.  We recreated our Palm Springs experience by having greyhounds  but decided to add another cocktail to the menu, a kaffir lime sour with ginger…..

This tart and citrus concoction was the perfect foil to the mountains of food we consumed – it is light, refreshing and bubbly thanks to a splash of sparkling water.  I think this may be my go-to drink as the weather heats up!

Bottoms Up!

Kaffir Lime Sour With Ginger


– Ginger Simple Syrup

Hanger One Kaffir Lime Vodka

– 1/2 lemon

– 1/2 cup sugar

– 1/4 cup fresh grated ginger

– sparking water


1) Make the ginger syrup: Combine grated ginger, sugar, and ½ cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Let cool to room temperature for at least one hour; strain out solids if desired. Ginger simple syrup will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

2) Make the cocktail. In an ice-filled cocktail shaker, combine 1¾ oz. lime vodka, ¾ oz. ginger syrup, and fresh lemon juice. Shake vigorously and pour out into an ice-filled glass. Top with sparkling water to taste.
