The Horse's Neck cocktail was originally a non-alcoholic beverage consisting of a mixture of ginger ale, ice and lemon peel. By the 1910s, bartenders had started adding brandy to the mix, giving us the cocktail we have today. The drink is identifiable by the long, curling spiral of lemon rind garnish.
Ginger beer is one of my favourite things in the world, especially blooming good in the summer when it's getting hot. I can't think of anything more sexy than having a big jug of iced ginger beer on the table with a barbecue on a hot day. The classic real ginger beers use a starter, and these are fantastic but slow, so here's my shortcut for getting amazing results taking hardly any time.
