HELLO friends! Guess what?

And yes, this is most definitely going to be a guessing game kind of a day. Just kidding. I must be feeling ornery today!

Recently I was introduced to an absolutely yummy, little drink, and I have to say… wow!

I’m told that this little cocktail is the official drink of Bermuda, and the original recipe calls for ginger beer. However, finding ginger beer can be a little trying (at least in my area!).

I even called up my local grocery store to make sure they had a can or two for me, but alas there was none. Boo.

Oh well, but you know what? I did check on Amazon and they have a nice selection (with good ratings!) of a few that I will be purchasing very soon! For instance, there’s Gosling’s Beer and also Fever-Tree Premium Ginger Beer.

So, Mike and I have resorted to using ginger ale instead, and I have to say that I love it just as much as the original.

Note: You definitely do not need to use Diet Ginger Ale as pictured below, but I just love the flavor! So, that’s what I tend to grab.
