A spicy and sometimes sweet ingredient, ginger can turn a good cocktail into a truly awe-inspiring one. Another bonus: It’s versatile. Not only is it delicious pickled with a plate of sushi — or, of course, in a classic whiskey and ginger ale — but the root can also be used in all types of tasty mixological ways.
