This one isn’t really a cocktail so much as it is…beer. But it is still alcohol, so here we go!
- Ginger Ale, Iced
- Fill highball glass halfway up with ginger ale; fill with beer.
- *For a Ginger Gaff, substitute ginger beer for ginger ale
- *For Dark Shandy Gaff, substitute dark beer for beer
We decided on a variation of the Shandy Gaff, the Ginger Gaff, since all we had on hand was ginger beer, not ginger ale!
But we did decide to use the Champagne of Beer as our beer choice.
“This is good.”
“Very light and a good ginger flavor. I like it.”
The Verdict: Good
From The Tasting Notes:
Tastes like a light, sweetened beer. Is actually good with Miller High Life. Tastes a bit like the bottled summer shandys, except without that overpowering citrus flavor and a nice ginger flavor instead.
This sounds refreshingly scrumptious, for beer!
Whipped up a ginger gaff tonight to celebrate a promotion at work this week. Quite yummy; tastes like ginger snap cookies!
Congrats on the promotion, and that is totally just the drink to celebrate with!
Oooh, must try this soon. Throw in a twist of lime or lemon and it’d be really refreshing on a hot summer’s day. A little different than our usual shandy of lemonade and lager or cream ale (really any sort of mild ale works).
