The Pagoda Cocktail - It's 5:00 Somewhere

I thought it would be fun to toast the conclusion of my pagoda series with a virtual pagoda cocktail. Domaine de Canton French Ginger Liquer is my favorite liquer by itself and it is sensational in cocktails. I think its pagoda bottle with black stripes is the most beautiful liquor bottle in the world. Here are many recipes for drinks made with this wonderful liquer. Being a Champagne girl, this is my favorite, the Canton Royale. Cheers or Gang bei!

1 part Domaine de Canton
3 parts Champagne
Squeeze the juice of a lemon wedge or add a dash of lemon bitters
Serve in a Champagne flute


  1. Perfect! How can it be that I have never tasted this, when I drink more than my fair share of Kir Royale and consume enough crystallized Ginger to exude it from my pores! Off to the liquor store I go :-). Looking forward to the Chinoiserie colours series...

  2. Cheers & Bravo for an exceptional homage to your muse!
