This included………..Thanks Mr. 85 Broad Street! I didn’t know this existed!
I bought the rum at my default liquor store in Mount Kisco. They also had Goslings Dark Rum 151 Proof but I didn’t want my taste testers needing a visit to the emergency room. Regular proof is good enough.
I had a long chat with the guy behind the counter, telling him how many places I had to go to find brands of ginger beer. I asked why they only carried Goslings. His answer, which I am calling the talking out of his ass response:
We only carry Goslings Ginger Beer because it has alcohol in it.
Huh, really? I ddidn’t think that was the case, but I smiled, paid my bill, said thank you and DASHED home to Google Does Goslings Ginger Beer have alcohol in it?
In order to make ginger beer, you would need sugar, lemon juice, ginger, water and ginger beer plant. … In today’s world, ginger beer is often thought of as being a non-alcoholic drink but Gosling’s and Crabbie’s are two very popular alcoholic ginger beer brands with alcohol percentages around 5%.
I’m also calling Google WRONG. The can of Goslings I have specifically says Non-Alcoholic soda!
The Fever Tree arrives tomorrow but we might save the whole hog tasting until the weekend. I’m running to Madison CT tomorrow to meet up with friends and the rest of the week is also pretty busy.
