Tanya’s Day

1 drink

Lana Vesselova


  • 1.5 oz Reyka vodka
  • 0.5 Fresh lime juice
  • 1.5 oz House made ginger beer (recipe below)
  • sprig of mint (garnish)

Ingredients for the Ginger Beer:

  • 1 lb. whole ginger
  • 2 qt. water
  • 1 qt. white sugar
  • 8 oz. lime juice
  • 1-2 finely diced hot peppers
  • 1 oz. turmeric
  • 1 tbsp.  dry yeast


  1. Ginger beer: Grate/shave/process whole ginger. Do not peel first. Add processed ginger to 2 quarts of water. Bring ginger/water to a boil, then reduce heat to the lowest setting.
  2. Stir in white sugar, lime juice, 1-2 finely diced hot peppers, and turmeric. Once the mixture is even, remove from heat. Allow cooling for 3 minutes before adding 1 tablespoon of dry yeast. (Skip this step if you do not want it to ferment, and use your ginger beer to have no alcohol content).
  3. Before serving it, make sure you strain it first! Also, beware of leaving either the hot peppers or the yeast sitting too long.
  4. Topped up with seltzer water.


  1. Add all the ingredients to the shaker tin and shake hard. Strain into a crystal Collins glass over big rocks and topped up with seltzer water.
