Root and Soda
What and soda? Root and soda. Oh. Have you not heard of Root before? I hadn’t. But a few weeks ago, I was chatting with one of the ladies who works at the front desk of my apartment building and we were discussing the spirits we enjoy sipping. She asked me if I ever had Root and then went on to describe it to me. Well, let’s just say every ingredient in it sounded like heaven and also that I went out and searched for it that very night. It was easier to find than I expected and I just hope I’m not the last to hear about this magical spirit.

Cool down (or warm up) with a ginger cocktail
Ginger is one of the most versatile ingredients around. Depending on how it's used, the root can either soothe or heat things up—and sometimes do both at once. That adaptability makes ginger particularly well suited for cocktails in the finicky season that is spring. From cool, tall drinks that conjure the Caribbean to warming concoctions that lean on the dessert-like properties of ginger as it plays off molasses, cinnamon and nutmeg, here are three libations that showcase ginger's great range.
