No, this isn’t about a spice girl. This Ginger Spice is a delicious Martell VS based cocktail. That feels perfect for this time of year. Call it Ginger Spice season (which follows pumpkin spice season). It’s that time of year where I I try to pass off anything with ginger as healthy for me. It’s good to keep a cold away, right? Well this cocktail makes no such cold chasing claims but it is delicious on a cold winter eve nestled up by the fire.

Ginger Spice Recipe:

  • 5ml Martell VS
  • 15ml blackcurrant, pear or blackberry liqueur
  • 10ml lemon juice
  • Ginger beer to top


  1. Build ingredients in a hi-ball glass over cubed ice.
  2. Garnish with a lemon slice and candied ginger.
  3. Enjoy.
  4. Repeat.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
