The Stormy Ditch

Featured Recipe Photo

Memorial Day Weekend calls for a cocktail from our book HostThe Stormy Ditch, our take on the classic summer beach cocktail, the Dark and Stormy, combines fresh ginger juice, lime and bourbon. The ginger juice adds an unbeatable punch of flavor and is one of our not-so-secret cocktail ingredients. It might sound exotic and hard to find, but just swing by your local juice bar to get the good stuff.

1 ounce simple syrup
3 ounces club soda
1 lime wheel, for garnish
