Apples & Onions


A refreshing sipper that is great to serve at a luncheon with an Asian-inspired meal of crab rolls and sesame chicken salad, or for a casual gathering with friends.


  • 1 cups limeade, divided
  • Ice, for serving (optional)
  • Two 12-ounce bottles ginger brew (sometimes called ginger beer), chilled
  • 1 fresh lime, halved plus two slices for garnish
  • 2 pieces thinly sliced ginger, for garnish


Divide the limeade among two tall glasses with a couple of cubes of ice, if you wish. Add 1 bottle ginger brew to each glass and a squirt of fresh lime. Garnish with more fresh lime and a thin slice of ginger.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
