Use versatile Wakaya Ginger in springtime cocktails

You already know that Wakaya Perfection Organic Pink Fijian Ginger Powder can add depth to your favorite recipes.

The country's top bartenders agree: This uniquely organic ginger powder is just as versatile in drinks, and it's the perfect way to spice up your springtime cocktail party.

Just ask Joshua Bradenburg, lead bartender at NYC's Forty Four at the Royalton, who uses the powder in his ginger-tinged rum spritzer, the Southern Storm (try the recipe). Equally refreshing, his gin-based Wakaya Bramble (try the recipe) gets its pretty hue from muddled blackberries.

What makes this ginger powder truly special? It's made from a rare variety of pink Fijian ginger. Tended by hand, the crops are grown in the mineral- and nutrient-rich volcanic soils of Wakaya, Fiji.

The ginger has drawn praise from renowned chefs for its pure, unique flavor, so there's no need to stop at drinks. Peter Vauthy, executive chef and vice president of Red, the Steakhouse, knows that this ginger is the perfect way to spice up any dish. Treat your guests to one of his recipes at your next cocktail party, like these Spiced Ginger Pecans (try the recipe) or this Wakaya Perfection Organic Ginger Hummus (try the recipe) made with agave nectar and organic virgin coconut oil.

Your warm-weather parties are going to get spiced up.
