Ginger Beer



  • 4 cups Water
  • ½ cup granulated Sugar
  • ½ oz. full-flavored (dark) Molasses
  • 2” Cinnamon Stick
  • 2 Star Anise
  • 12 Allspice Berries (~1/2 tsp)
  • 10 Cloves (~1/2 tsp)
  • 1½ oz. Ginger Juice*
  • 1½ oz. fresh Lemon Juice

  • In a large sauce pot, add the water, sugar, molasses, cinnamon, and star anise. Stir, bring to a light boil, and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the allspice berries and cloves and let sit for 10 minutes. Strain the mixture into a bowl containing the ginger and lemon juices. Stir and place in the refrigerator until well chilled (4-5 hours). Place into a soda siphon, charge, and serve.

  • *To make ginger juice, peal a 7-8 oz plump and firm ginger root. Grate the ginger on a medium-fine grater. Press through a fine mesh sieve to release the juice.

We make our own Ginger Beer for great cocktails like the Moscow Mule, Dark & Stormy, or El Diablo. It adds a great spice needed for these cocktails and is actually not that difficult to make.
