My earlier post about Shirley Temples got me thinking about my favorite ginger ale, Blenheim's. A few years ago, I came across Blenheim's Hot Ginger Ale and WOW! it completely knocked my socks off (in fact, that used to be one of their slogans). Originally formulated in 1903 by Dr. C.R. May and A.J. Matheson as a stomach treatment, Blenheim's is now available in four flavors.
- Not as Hot
- Ginger Beer
I've never actually had anything but the Hot, but it is truly great. It's a high-quality beverage with an intense ginger burn that will make your head sweat and your mouth tingle. It does however, have a glorious sweet finish that makes you want to drink more. If you like your ginger ale spicy then hunt down a bottle, because it's well worth it. If you can't find it near you (it's tough to find), you can buy Blenheim's online for $1.49 a bottle.
