As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I recently received the Tervis Tumbler to try out in my home. A microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe unbreakable tumbler that has a lifetime guarantee-just what I needed to have in my busy kitchen. In jest, I’m accused of constantly having either a glass of iced tea, water or a hot beverage in my hand throughout the day. The Tervis Tumbler seemed to be the perfect vessel for me! Thanks to both companies for giving me the opportunity to try this product.
Last year, I made a non-alcoholic ginger beer, a refreshing spicy, not-too-sweet cold beverage made from fresh ginger root, brown sugar, lime zest and juice. It was so popular in my house that I wanted to make it again with a different twist. The juice and zest of a large navel orange stood in for one of the limes and while the orange didn’t vastly change the flavor of the ginger beer, there was a delightful sparkle to the finished drink.
4 ounces fresh ginger, coarsely chopped-no need to peel
1 lime, zest and juice
1 large navel orange, zest and juice
2 whole cloves
1 cup light brown sugar
Soda, tonic water, or sparkling mineral water
In the bowl of a food processor, process ginger until grated. Remove to a large heatproof pitcher or measuring cup. Add both lime and orange zest and juices, cloves and brown sugar. Add 4 cups boiling water, then stir until the sugar dissolves. Cool, strain, then chill. To serve, half-fill glasses with the ginger beer and top off with the soda, tonic water or sparkling mineral water. Garnish with lime and orange slices. Top with a maraschino cherry. Serves 4.
Tervis Tumbler was received as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program and Tervis Tumblers. My opinion is my own.
