This time I present a Rhöni longdrink that is easy to make. Rhöntropfen harmonises surprisingly well with ginger ale. Therefore I present a simple and refreshing drink. I will also use this opportunity to test a couple of different ginger ales available on the market and their suitability for this drink. With time, I will add more and more reviews of ginger ales to this post, so keep returning to this post ;-)
|1/4 oz||lime juice|
Add Rhöntropfen and lime juice to a long drink glass. Fill with ice and top with ginger ale. Stir with a straw.
Refreshing drink that perfectly opens up the different flavours of the Rhöntropfen, adding the interesting spiciness of ginger. The light acidity of the lime juice creates a refreshing experience.
Le Roc Ginger Ale:
Le Roc ginger ale surprises with a very bubbly drink. It is strongly carbonated, I would even say too much. Le Roc ginger ale has a slight taste of ginger. It is thus very light. Unfortunately it is very sweet compared to the amount of ginger aromas present. All in all a very light ginger ale that asks for a reduction in the amount of sugar used in the cocktail.
For the Rhöni Ginger, Le Roc ginger ale is not suitable, since the strong aromas of the Rhöntropfen requires an aromatic ginger ale, Le Roc ginger ale is not suitable for this drink.
Thomas Henry Ginger Ale:
Thomas Henry, as Le Roc, is a very bubbly affair. In the nose, this ginger ale is definitely gingery. It is medium sweet (less sweet than Le Roc) and thus more pleasant. The ginger taste level is also medium to my taste and could be somewhat stronger. Its finish is slightly spicy. Overall a good ginger ale and can be used if the gingery touch should only be hinted at first and should have a slight spicy finish.
For the Rhöni Ginger, TH Ginger Ale was better suited than Le Roc, however I would wish to have more ginger flavours in the outcome. These have not been present, since the Rhöni overpowers the ginger flavours. However the spicy finish prevailed and was rather irritating in the end.
