Opened in the spring, the new bar and lounge at the Naples Grande Beach Resort, Mantra, has an ambitious cocktail program (plus a casual kitchen that gives a variety of tastes to go along with the libations from across the Pacific Rim). Try this simple, fresh recipe using real pieces of ginger root at home when the clock next strikes five.


Ginger Side Car

4 to 5 pieces of ginger root
1.5 ounces Hennessy V.S.
1 ounce Canton ginger liquor
1.5 ounces lemon juice
0.25 ounces simple syrup

In a pint glass, add ginger. Muddle hard. Add spirits and other ingredients. Fill with ice, then shake hard for 10 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass. For a special touch, add a piece of candied ginger as a garnish or rim the glass with red sugar.
