I have never had a ginger beer like this. Ever.

Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer surprised me in nearly every way possible; it is fantastic on its own and as a mixer it is the best I have ever had. On it’s own Crabbie’s pours a clear golden color with carbonation bubbles throughout. This is a great ginger beer with the added alcohol giving it a bit of a subtle warm kick, something that I was appreciative of every sip. The natural ginger spices are evident in a subtle and exciting spiciness that is unique to this drink. Adding a wedge of lime helps temper that ginger spiciness a bit resulting in a smooth taste that is easy to drink. The citrus overtones make this a refreshing choice that I look forward to enjoying on a summer day.

Crabbie’s Original really shined when I mixed it with a dark Jamaican rum, a dash of bitters, and a lime wedge to make the best Dark N’ Stormy I had. Crabbie’s spicy ginger notes complimented and accentuated the Jamaican rum’s spices well, the result was a perfect pairing of spice and subtlety. The Dark N’ Stormy is already one of my go to mixed drinks, and Crabbie’s Original brought it to a whole other level, making it one of my all-time favorite cocktails.
