Ginga Syrup: The Great Modifier

Ginga Syrup: The Great Modifier

Ginga Syrup: The Great Modifier for cocktails and mocktails

Something you need to add to your bar today is ginger. This ingredient can take your cocktails to a whole new level. While it doesn’t need to be the base of a cocktail, this flavor can complement your home libations and act as your secret ingredient. Ginger is something you can find in many classic cocktails as a ginger liqueur, syrup, or beer. 

We make our Iconic Ginga Syrup year round because it is important to cocktail culture. Made only with real ginger and a small amount of pure cane sugar, our Ginga Syrup has concentrated goodness that can round out so many cocktails you make. Did your cocktail get too sweet? Is it falling flat? Ginga Syrup to the rescue. 

We’re going LIVE to show you all the ways to use Ginga Syrup in your home bar.
