I received a bottle of Barrow’s Intense for inclusion in this post. Opinions and recipe are my own.
As I begin my holiday planning, I’ve been working on setting up the perfect bar (I’ll have all of the details and how-to do it yourself soon), and thought that this year I needed a new signature drink for my guests.
There’s nothing more refreshing than a glass of ginger ale, and there is no surprise when I tell you that I love my bubbles…especially when it comes from a bottle that’s been popped. That’s why when I opened a bottle of Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur I knew that I could recreate my favorite non-alcoholic drink with a little more oomph and pop.
Barrow’s Intense is my first foray into ginger liqueur, and I’ve begun to experiment with it from a simple pour-over vanilla ice cream to soaking lady fingers in it for a rich ginger trifle, and yes you can make a great Ginger Martini or mix it with rum, lime juice and pour over some regular ginger ale (not my recipe below) for a great twist on a Dark ‘n Stormy.
Intense French Ginger Ale
- Fill glass with ice cubes
- 4 oz Sparkling Wine, Prosecco or Champagne (I used Saint Germain French Sparkling Wine in mine)
- 1 oz Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur
What makes the flavor of Barrow’s Intense so great? SIMPLICITY! You see THIS liqueur is made from only four ingredients – 200 pounds of fresh ginger per batch, water, sugar and neutral cane spirit – and never any preservatives or chemicals.
Make sure that your holiday bar is well-stocked by adding Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur to the mix.
Do you have a recipe that would be a great fit for Barrow’s Intense? Let me know, I’d LOVE to try it.
