Ginger liqueurs bring a semi-sweet, semi-spicy flavor to cocktails and it’s awfully fun to play with. It can be used in a variety of recipes, featuring everything from whiskey to gin and vodka to rum.
Domaine de Canton is the best-known premium ginger liqueur, though The King’s Ginger is quickly picking up fans. The quality is nearly the same, as is the price, and the flavor is similar. The biggest difference is that Canton is a little truer to the raw ginger flavor and not quite as sweet as The King’s Ginger, though this one does have a bolder ginger kick.
