Ginger Liqueur Cocktails

Ginger liqueur is a bottle of deliciousness that you can find at almost any liquor store.

It’s essentially a spicy flavor fusion of ginger root and neutral spirits.

Brands like Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur and The King’s Ginger offer a high-quality ginger kick, perfect for cocktails that’ll light up your happy hour or any special occasion.

Ginger liqueur adds a touch of both sweetness and spiciness to your cocktails.

This versatile liqueur pairs well with a wide range of spirits, from whiskey and gin to vodka and rum.

What To Serve with Ginger Liqueur Cocktails?

The spicy kick of ginger liqueur pairs great with appetizers like Shrimp Cocktails or Spicy Buffalo Wings (for a plant-based option, try our Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower).

A Cheese Board or Charcuterie Board with a selection of cheeses, meats, and fruits can offer multiple pairing options for your cocktails. Soft cheeses like Brie or Camembert are especially good with sweeter cocktails, while stronger cheeses like blue can stand up to more intense ginger liqueur flavors.

Other easy appetizers to serve at a cocktail party include

For desserts, think along the lines of Ginger Snaps, Brandy Snaps, or Spiced Rhubarb And Apple Crumble.

Orange and Ginger Cocktail with Rum

Virgin Orange Ginger Mocktail (Non-Alcoholic)

So that non-drinkers can enjoy our main cocktail, we simply remove the alcohol and replace it!

Follow the recipe card using the non-alcoholic alternatives listed below instead of the alcoholic ones.

I recommend adding the syrups to your taste as they may add the sweetness you may not necessarily get from alcoholic liqueurs.

Mocktail with Non-Alcoholic Spirits

For adults who would still like to enjoy the taste of alcohol in their mocktail, you could try non-alcoholic alternatives.

In the UK, try Lyre’s, which is also available on Amazon in the UK and

Other brands include Strykk (UK) and Ritual (US & Canada). Non-alcoholic spirits are a growing trend, so be on the lookout in your local stores and online.
