Want a snappy cocktail? Add ginger. My friend Roy Otwell makes a mean ginger martini that he boasts is “world famous.”

World famous? Perhaps not—at least, not yet. Still, it’s one of my favorite all-time cocktails. (If we’re really lucky, maybe Roy will share the recipe with us one day.)

My friend Kim McGuire says she’s found a ginger cocktail that can rival Roy’s, and it’s made from tequila. Instead of fresh ginger, it uses Domaine de Canton, a French ginger liquor that sells for about $18 a bottle.

You’ll need:

One and a half part of Domaine de Canton (Kim uses a little less to cut down on the sweetness.)

One part of a premium tequila

Half a part of fresh lime juice

Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

I can’t wait to try it!
