Reed’s Ginger Brew Review & Moscow Mule Recipe

Moscow Mule Cocktail has and remains very popular so I wanted to add my review on Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew, a staple ingredient in the Moscow Mule.

Moscow Mule Cocktail Recipe
1-1/2 ounces vodka
Cold Ginger Beer
Garnish Lime Wedge
Copper Mug
Pour the vodka into a copper mug filled with ice, squeeze lime into mug. Fill with Ginger Beer.
Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew is the same recipe as Original Ginger Brew, but has 26 grams (instead of 17 grams) of fresh ginger root for a stronger taste. The other ingredients are the same lemon, lime, honey, cane sugar, pineapple, herbs and spices.

Reed’s Stronger Ginger Brew Here is a list of ingredients from the bottle, Sparkling Filtered Water (Sweetened by a blend of raw cane sugar, pineapple juice from concentrate and honey), Fresh Ginger Root, Lemon and Lime Juices from concentrate and spices. Non Alcoholic. Free of Preservatives, Caffeine, Gluten & GMO’s.

Here is the story of Chris Reed who founded Reed’s Ginger Brew. He first decided to create a ginger ale made with fresh ginger in 1987, he went to UCLA library, pre internet, to research into the early formulas for soft drinks. He figured if he went back far enough in time he would find recipes that worked with real ingredients. Then he found a book from the 1780’s, before the first bottling plants even existed, that talked about brewing sodas from whole roots, spices and fruit juices in the kitchen. Chris knew he had found what he was looking for. These early soft drinks, besides being delicious, were also used as herbal tonics. After two years of much trial and error, Reed’s Original Ginger Brew was ready to launch.
Reed’s brews are a delicious revival of the lost brewing art of brewing sodas. Each small batch is hand crafted with pride, carefully brewed and aged by expert brew masters. They choose only the finest fresh herbs, roots, spices and fruits. They don’t use any preservatives or artificial anything in our beverages. And in my opinion Reed’s Brews make the best cocktails.

Ben & Jerry’s Bernie Sanders Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry’s cofounder Ben Cohen made a small batch of ice cream in honor of presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders. Bernie’s Yearning is a mint flavored ice cream with giant chocolate chips somehow is representing the top 1% that has got all the wealth in the last 10 years. The brand is actually Ben’s Best so it will not have the Ben & Jerry’s logo. Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc. has nothing to do with this totally volunteered venture from Ben. Ben & Jerry’s is based in Vermont and in the past has been outspoken yet this is a small but clear way of saying they hope Bernie Sanders a Vermont Senator since 2007 is elected as our next president. If this does not prove it maybe past donations from both Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield to Bernie Sanders campaign, will. Bernie Sanders definitely has the younger voter on it’s side and this is one more way of getting the younger voter interested in Bernie Sanders.
