Lovers of ginger will be in heaven when they sample this drink, as will those who are indifferent to the root, if truth be told. This African cocktail is commonly found in the majority of West African cities, and it is commonly served on ice, or chilled, making for another refreshing African cocktail to counter-act the hot sunshine. This African cocktail is made by taking 6 – 8 peeled ginger roots, blending them to a fine pulp, combining them with boiled water and leaving to stand for an hour, before straining the mixture into a jug through a cloth, squeezing out every last drop of liquid you can. From here, you combine the liquid with the juice of 2 – 3 lemons, or pineapple juice, and sugar to taste. You can also add cloves and a dash of cinnamon as an optional. Here, you mix the liquid with ice, or chill in the fridge, and enjoy. For a delicious alcoholic cocktail however, take a glass, and add a shot of spiced rum!
