Several nights ago, Lon and I stopped in at a liquor store looking for something else, but ended up with a bottle of Stone’s Original Ginger ( Ginger Flavored Currant Wine).  Having no idea what it was, we thought the ginger would be nice with some carrot cake we had lying around.

We tried it over ice, as suggested on the bottle, but it seems too concentrated by itself. I didn’t let that bother me though, because I knew it had potential. The concentrated ginger and sweetness means it would be a perfect mixer.

Wonderfully sweet peaches are in season so I decided on a Ginger Spiked Peach Lassi, perfect for an Indian inspired meal.

Ginger Spiked Peach Lassi
~makes 1 cup

  • 1 (6oz) ripe peach
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt (like Fage 2% yogurt)
  • 2 ounces Stones’ Original Ginger (flavored currant wine)

Chill all of the ingredients in the fridge. Peel and pit the peach. You should be left with 5 ounces of peach. Put it in the blender with yogurt and Stone’s Ginger. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

For $11.99 a bottle (750 ML) and 13.5% alcohol, it’s a great mixer to have around. I’ll probably be making more cocktails with this.
