Ginger Smash


The Ginger Smash is a complex rustic drink, that melds bittersweet qualities of kumquats with spiciness of ginger, and it’s loaded with tartness.






  • 1.5 ounce Tequila Cabeza
  • 1 ounce Rhum Clement Creole Shrub
  • 2 thin slices of ginger roots
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 2 kumquats
  • 1 tsp super fine sugar
  • 2 dashes Dale DeGroff Pimento Bitters

How to make The Ginger Smash Cocktail:

Muddle the ginger, kumquats and sugar in the shaker.  Pour the rest of the ingredients into the shaker and fill it up with ice.  Shake vigorously and pour it unstrained into a glass.
