Thirsty Thursday: New Ginger Citrus Cocktail

I think I'm on a ginger kick, and I'm fairly sure it goes with absolutely everything. It does take a little prep work (maybe not the best ingredient for your first night of bartending), but is well worth the effort when it comes to perking up a drink. This cocktail is easy to make (after the ginger part), light, and refreshing.

2 ounces rum
1/2 ounce orange juice
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce lime
Splash triple sec
2 ounces tonic water

Step 1: Slice ginger, mince with a grater, or crush with a garlic press

Step 2: Press ginger into small strainer to collect ginger juice

Step 3: Slice oranges, lemons, and limes
Step 4: Squeeze into a glass packed with ice
Step 5: Add ginger juice

Step 6: Add rum
Step 7: Add tonic water, shake once, and serve
