Welcome to the new Fire Cider Recipe blog! Each week Amy will post a new recipe, festival update or cocktail recipe. This one features one of my favorite foods: ginger.
This hot or cold beverage goes by the name ‘Ginger Cooler’ at the juice bar in the Berkshire Co-op Market in Great Barrington, MA. Amy and Dana bought the first Fire Cider ingredients in bulk from the co-op and have been members since moving home to the Berkshires in September 2009.
To make this yummy, warming drink:
- green apples
- large chunk of ginger
- splash to full ounce of Fire Cider
Send enough green apples and ginger through your juicer to make a 12 oz. glass of juice.
For a hot drink, heat the ginger and apple juice gently on the stove top until warm.
Add a splash or up to a full ounce of Fire Cider.
If you don’t have a juicer, you can make this fall favorite by heating up fresh-pressed apple cider with grated fresh ginger root. Add Fire Cider to the warmed juice and enjoy! This combination is also delicious as a cold drink.
