Reeds Real Ginger Ale

I partnered with Reed's to share with you on NATIONAL GINGER ALE DAY some tasty cocktail ideas. Spice up these drinks by adding Reed's REAL Ginger Ale into your ingredient list. Sourced from organic Peruvian ginger harvested from sustainable farms located in the Amazon rainforest, the main ingredient in this craft soda provides a unique flavor experience when the Ginger Ale is enjoyed by itself or mixed into other beverages. Reed's is available in three levels of spiciness (original, extra and strongest) as well as in traditional recipe and a zero sugar variety.

So what exactly is Ginger? It is a spice derived from the root of the Ginger plant. This plant that has leafy stems and yellowish green flowers originated in Southeast Asia and the spice created from its roots have been used for centuries as a medicine and food flavoring. In addition to be grown in the warm climates of Asia, the crop is also now farmed in Africa and South America as well.

Ginger Ales were created in the mid-1800s as a medicinal tonic by apothecaries but instead became popular as a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage at pharmacy soda counters, especially as prohibitionist movements increased in influence in the early 20th Century. Reed's Ginger Ale has been crafted in small batches since 1987 using a Jamaican-style recipe using an all-natural blend of fresh ginger, pineapple juice, lemon juice, lime juice, honey and spices revived from a centuries old recipe from Colonial times.
