Ginger Food Recipes

Wait a second...you thought Pickett's Ginger Beer Syrup was limited to just being used in beverages? No Chance!  

While we feel it is a standout in the Ginger Beer category, as a concentrated syrup it also has lots of culinary applications - such as a spicy sweetener for tea, lemonade or other soft drinks, add to a smoothie, in dressings, marinades, glazes and simply over ice cream.  It carmelizes nicely when sauteeing or grilling and can even be used to "candy" nuts or other snacks.  

Get creative, experiment and enjoy.  Have a Pickett's Ginger Beer recipe of your own?  Share it with us and we will put it on the site and give you credit.  info3.jpg

Kicked-Up Ginger Iced Tea

Ginger Beer Syrup to an 8 oz glass of your favorite iced tea drink.  Add a squeeze of lemon to compliment.
 
 

Ginger Spiced Ice Cream Topping

 
For most people a scoop of vanilla ice cream is the perfect dessert palate cleanser.  But for us, adding a
tablespoon or two of Pickett's Ginger Beer Syrup to the mix is an even more refreshing option.  Add some crushed almonds for some texture.
