Gingertini Cocktails in Windsor

Gingertini Cocktails in Windsor

Ginger is a real flavour enhancer. It gives salad a wonderful fresh taste when grated raw. Added to tea it settles the stomach and helps a cold, ginger can be added to a stir fry at the last few minutes and can be candied to make sweets and added to cakes.
A useful syrup to add to your collection, this is nice to add to make a Gingertini, to add to soda water to make a mocktail or a cup of tea.
