A powerhouse with medicinal properties, ginger has a warming effect on the body, stimulates circulation, reduces inflammation, and inhibits viruses and bacteria—all of which makes it the perfect antidote to the impending cold season. We toss it into soups and sautés, steep our favorite teas with it, and even better, mix it into our cocktails. Here, Pegu Club mixologist extraordinaire Audrey Saunders shares her recipe for homemade ginger beer. We love using it in a Moscow Mule, Dark & Stormy, or just about any cocktail to add soothing hints of warmth and spice. Get the recipe here.
