Siglocktail 7-21-20: the Ginger Rogers

Tomorrow night at 6pm PST for our SIGLERinPLACE livestream, I’ll be making a couple of Ginger Rogers when our show starts. Feel free to join us, make a Shirley Temple version, or just pour your own beverage of any kind and relax!

Also, we’re celebrating National Junk Food Day, so get your favorites ready!

The Ginger Rogers has a cousin that’s a bit simpler, without the ginger simple syrup, so don’t fret if you don’t have (and don’t want to make) the syrup. That’s called a Gin Gin Mule, and it’s also yummy.


  • 2 oz. gin (I’ll use St. George’s Terroir)
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz. ginger syrup (omit this ingredient for the Gin Gin Mule)
  • 2 oz. ginger ale I used Fever Tree
  • 6 mint leaves
  • 1 mint sprig
  • 1 slice fresh lemon

Mad Scientist Process of Assembly™

  • Combine the mint leaves and ginger syrup in the bottom of a glass. (Just muddle the mint leaves if you don’t make/have the syrup!)
  • Using a muddler or a spoon, lightly crush the mint leaves to release their oils.
  • Add the gin and lemon juice and stir.
  • Add the ice.
  • Add the ginger ale and stir.
  • Garnish with lemon slices and a mint sprig if desired.
