If you like the strong taste of fresh ginger, this cocktail will give you all of the ginger flavor without a strong alcohol taste. I received a bottle of Domaine de Canton (ginger liqueur) as a gift and hadn't hit on a nice drink-- until now. We were all over the internet looking for recipes, and I don't remember the source, but I respect anyone whose recipe can be so easily committed to memory.
Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz vodka 1 1/2 oz ginger liqueur splash of fresh lemon juice garnish with lemon Directions: Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in vodka, ginger liqueur and lemon juice. Shake well. Pour into a martini glass and garnish.
