Reputedly based on a 17th century Pennsylvania Dutch drink (Ginger) Snap, which in turn its makers say can trace its roots back to a medieval recipe invented by German monks in the 13th Century.
(Ginger) Snap is made from neutral spirits (we presume sugar cane, in line with its Root product) and flavoured with Blackstrap molasses, ginger, brown sugar, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, rooibos tea and vanilla.
It is recommended to drink neat, with bourbon (equal parts, shaken and strained into a cocktail glass), paired with Champagne or Prosecco in a flute, served in a highball with rye, orange juice, honey and barrel-aged bitters (shaken), or with lemonade and soda for a refreshing long drink.
