Drink of the Week: Fever-Tree Smoky Ginger Ale

Among a handful of new Fever-Tree flavors released this spring, the Smoky Ginger Ale is especially unexpected. Made with a signature blend of three types of ginger, the soda is bright and spicy and is a perfect counter balance to the smoky aroma and flavor. Fever-Tree tapped Besmoke for an applewood smoked water, created through the company’s proprietary process TrueSmoke. Combined with the sweet, spicy ginger ale, it’s an utterly unique mixer, whether used to enhance the characteristics of scotch or mezcal, or to add a smoky note to rum or bourbon cocktails. Or skip the cocktail mixing and simply enjoy it as a refreshing spirit-free alternative. $7/4-pack, reservebar.com.
