Drink DuJour: Spicy Ginger

Red Stixs Southampton’s ultimate summer cocktail

Red Stixs Southampton has a unique way of reimagining standard Chinese fare—and it does the same for standard cocktail menu staples. One example? The Spicy Ginger cocktail.  

“It’s versatile enough to go with anything on our dinner menu,” says bartender Nicola Jakubowicz. “The specific ingredients chosen complement each other perfectly: a mixture of ginger and crushed red pepper opens your appetite, while the mint gives the cocktail a refreshing and light taste.”

Ready to give it a try? Here’s what you’ll need.


1½ oz. Skyy Vodka
½ oz. Triple Sec
Fresh mint leaves
Freshly shaved ginger 

Muddle fresh mint and fresh ginger in separate mixing glasses. Add ingredients and stir with ice. Add a splash of fresh lime juice, garnish with red chili pepper, top with seltzer and enjoy.
