Glad you love these!
Friendly note from a former bartender: NEVER shake anything that is carbonated. A good rule of thumb for any cocktail is to add all juices/other ingredients to the shaker, shake, pour into your serving glass and then top with the carbonated beverage. Then you can give it a quick swirl with a spoon to gently incorporate the yummy flavors in with the carbonated mixer. Other than that, this drink sounds so tasty!
Hey Gemma! Thanks for the tip!
Yeah maybe don’t shake it with the ginger beer in it, kinda causes an explosion.
