It’s quite possible, even probable, that your first encounter with spiced alcohol came in the form of an ill-advised shot someone handed you in college. Like leaving behind Solo cups and learning to wash your sheets once a year, it’s time to graduate to something more sophisticated. Embrace autumn in all its spice-happy glory with one of these bottles that pack a punch.
This golden liqueur made by an indie Brooklyn (of course) distiller packs a big gingery punch — each batch requires 30lbs of fresh ginger to steep in the cane spirit base for nearly a month. The spicy-sweet spirit will amp up Moscow mules, Dark ‘n Stormys, and other ginger-centric cocktails.
