  • This cocktail can be easily doubled.
  • Bundaberg Ginger Beer is the best ginger beer for this cocktail and can be found in select Costco stores or well stocked grocery stores.
  • If you can’t find Bundaberg Ginger Beer, Fever Tree or Reeds makes an excellent Ginger Beer.
  • Goslings Black Seal Rum is preferred, however, Myer’s Dark Rum is very good as well.
