Vol. 500 ml / 6.1% ABV
The second cider I ever made was Deliverance Ginger
way back in April of 2012. I felt that the simplicity of apple and ginger, while delicious, was getting a bit long in the tooth. This new bottle, on the other hand, is rather futuristic. Behold Deliverance Ginger Tonic!
To each batch of cider, I add gallons of pure squeezed ginger juice
, hundreds of hand-cut fresh lemongrass stalks
, the fresh-squeezedjuice and zest of thousands of limes
(zested by hand!) and top it off with hand-extracted quinine from the bark of the Peruvian cinchona tree. This chemical has antipyretic, antimalarial, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. Should you contract malaria, proceed immediately to a doctor
. Otherwise, please enjoy this refreshing libation.
To those fans disappointed by the departure of the classic Deliverance Ginger, I tell them that this new concoction checks all the same flavor boxes but does so with more excitement. Enjoy!
Pairs well with:
Wild-harvested moules frites, Thai red curry, tuna nigirizushi, dynamite sushi roll, wasabi shooters. Spiced rum, dark rum, ginger syrup and lime juice as a Dark and Stormy.
Cheese: Face Rock Creamery‘s Monterey Jack
