Hot Soda: Ginger Beer from Q Drinks

Looking for a low-calorie soda that still tastes great? Try Q Drinks — clean, crisp, completely unique beverages that stand proudly on their own or enhance the finest spirits!

Q Ginger Beer - Dark, Stormy & Cidery_Bottle

Q Drinks comes in 8 different flavors with better ingredients and far less sugar/calories than its competitors. The newest flavor? Q Ginger Beer, a very spicy drink with lots of depth that isn’t too sweet.

The Ginger Beer has loads of real ginger for a spicy kick and is lightly sweetened with organic agave. With just 90 calories per serving, it’s the perfect mixture for rum, vodka and whiskey.

With Halloween coming up, try this Q Ginger Beer-inspired drink, the Dark, Stormy & Cidery!

Ingredients: 3 parts chilled Q Ginger Beer, 2 parts dark rum, 1 part chilled apple cider, 1/2 part fresh lime juice, 1 apple slice and 1 lime wedge.

Method: Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the rum and lime juice and shake well. Pour the Q Ginger Beer into an ice-filled collins glass, top with apple cider and then the shaken rum. Garnish with an apple slice and lime wedge. Try to balance the lime wedge on the apple slice like a sinking ship (it gets easier on the third drink)!
