This cocktail is inspired by the morning beverage of coffee with cream. To keep it light and not weighed down with using actual cream I decided to model it after a Moscow Mule by using cream soda to replace the cream and give the effervescence of ginger beer. Adding a couple of drops of Jamaican Ginger Bitters allows the drink to have some of that ginger punch like a Moscow Mule would have as well as adds a bit more complexity to the drink.
2 oz Belle Isle Cold Brew Moonshine cream soda of your liking, I recommend IBC. Its made with real sugar cane, not high fructose corn syrup.
3-5 dashes of Jamaican Ginger Bitters
Add the Belle Isle Cold Brew Moonshine and Jamaican Ginger Bitters into a mixing tin, add ice, shake and strain over fresh crushed ice in a copper mug. Top with cream soda and garnish with a fresh edible flower. We get ours from a local farm, Cabbage Hill Farm.
