Sometimes just keep it nice and simple with a rum and ginger. Pour the rum into a glass with ice and top up the glass with ginger ale. Add a lime wedge to the glass and it's done!

  • 200ml Fever Tree Spiced Orange Ginger Ale

  • ½ a Lime (sliced into quarters)

  • ½ tsp Demerara Sugar

Everyones loves a rum and coke, right? We certainly do, but we like to spice it up slightly with some lime and even better company.
