Ginger Beer gives you the punch in the jaw line under the tongue
Half Spicy and peppery, half lemony, a little sweet but penetrating; it is the flavour of ginger. This flavouring root is used for cooking in many of countries across the world. In Guyana, it is no different. It is use in some dishes, but at Christmas time this highly aromatic root becomes very popular. In fact, it is traditionally a holiday staple in Guyana with one of its most favorite uses being ginger beer. As the name evokes, this beverage is flavoured with ginger.
Ginger beer’s popularity in Guyana is often compared to the popularity of Egg Nog in North American.
I personally was never fond of ginger beer – after all it is no fun drinking something peppery and spicy when you are young, but over time I have come to love this drink.
