Dear interwebz user looking for “lily white ginger sex,”
I apologize profusely for not possessing what you were so diligently searching for. It seems weird to me, too, that this would be the case. Alas for us both.
Thank you for the inspiration.
Or, The Sexy Southern Ginge: A LeFevre Original Cocktail
Tried a new drink last night.
A recipe of necessity because after a really terrible day, for a lot of different reasons, I needed a good stiff drink when I got home and found myself limited only by the contents of my kitchen and the bounds of my creativity.
For some reason…it occurred to me that my good-for-settling-the-stomach ginger ale might actually be a fine mixer with my Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka.
I think I went roughly 1 part to 2, vodka to ginger ale.
Ladies and gentlemen…a success! Verily a success! And there was much rejoicing.
The combination makes a light, refreshing sweet cocktail. The dryness of the ginger ale cuts down on the cloying sweetness of the tea-flavored vodka, and the flavors mixed really well together. Firefly is often served with a lemon in it, which would probably still make a good garnish with this combination, though I cannot verify as I did not have any fresh lemon on hand. I can’t speak as to whether the ginger ale mitigates the hangover Firefly can cause because I only had one (granted it had like three ounces of the vodka, but…).
I coined the name Southern Ginge for it just because…Firefly is made in the South, and the South is home to sweet tea, and I was mixing it with GINGER ale…and who doesn’t love a good Southern gentleman or a sexy ginge?
