Beware of Fentimans ginger beer available on some swiss online shops, that stuff will burn holes through everything!
BTW, asked for a shipping quote for 2x4 bottles of the above... 150.- (6kg)

Anyone know of any in the Nyon / Geneve area?
A 20 minute train ride to Renens train station and the asian shop right opposite the station has Jamaica ginger beer for you.

Try making your own!

This recipe for Easy Peasy Ginger Beer is in Jamie Oliver's book "Happy Days with the Naked Chef"

140gr/5oz fresh ginger
4 tablespoons (60 ml) muscovado (Brown!) sugar
2-3 lemons
1 litre (or 1 pints) sparkling mineral water
sprigs of fresh mint

First of all you need to grate the ginger on a coarse cheese grater - you can leave the skin on if you like. Put the ginger with its pulpy juice into a bowl and sprinkle in the muscovado sugar. Remove the rind from 2 of the lemons with a vegetable peeler, add to the bowl, and slighly bash and squash with something heavy, like a pestle or a rolling pin. Just do this for 10 seconds to mix up all the flavours. Squeeze the juice from all 3 lemons and add most of it to the bowl. Pour in the fizzy water or soda water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes and then taste. You may feel that the lemons are slightly too sour, so just add a little more sugar. If it's too sweet add a little more lemon juice. To be honest these amounts are always a little variable so just follow your own taste. Pass the ginger beer through a coarse sieve into a large jug and add lots of ice and some sprigs of mint.

Anyone know of any in the Nyon / Geneve area? I brought a nice bottle of black strap rum with me when I moved here to use for some Dark and Stormies when it gets hot only to find no ginger beer! Bunderburg (from australia, very smooth with strong ginger taste, fairly sweet, my favorite for dark and stormies) or Reeds (I think from US, had a nice crisp almost citrus taste with the ginger, good when you want a crisper drink) were both readily available in US but I haven't seen any here.

Ahhh sunny days - right now I am enjoying Gin + orange juice + camparisoda + some stuff called "elderflower extract" with the sun and song of the birds (basically procrastinating from doing my french lessons)
Ahhhhh Bunderburg!!! Sooo good and Reeds too...both have different yet extrememly satisfying results :-) I'm going to try to make my own brew like another post suggested. How do you go about making your Dark and Stormies??
