Product Description


Stone's Original Ginger, a peppy currant wine from England that's flavored with ground ginger. Hard-core ginger lovers will want to go for the burn and drink Stone's straight over ice, but we prefer the ginger snap, a refreshing combination of one part Stone's to three parts vodka. Top it off with club soda or ginger ale, garnish with an orange slice and a cherry, and you've got yourself a fresh-faced beverage that packs a sneaky wallop.

Ginger Rum Mousse

3 eggs

60g sugar

1 cup (240ml) milk

2 tbspns powdered gelatin

60g finely chopped preserved ginger

4 tbspns Stone's Green Ginger Wine

1/8 cup (30ml) dark rum

1 cup (240ml) whipped cream

Separate egg yolks and whites, reserving whites. Cream egg yolks and sugar. Heat the milk - but do not boil - and slowly stir egg yolks and sugar into hot milk and cook until mixture just coats a spoon (as with custard). Dissolve gelatin powder in the custard and pass through a fine sieve. Add half the diced ginger to the mixture. Heat the ginger wine and rum together to reduce slightly, then set it alight and leave to burn until flame dies out. Allow to cool a little before combining it with the custard, then mix well and allow to cool. Stiffly beat egg whites. In a separate bowl, beat the cream. When custard mixture is almost cold, fold in stiffly beaten egg whites, followed by the whipped cream. Spoon the mousse into serving glasses and place in the refrigerator to set for at least 1 hour.

Decorate with the remainder of the preserved ginger, and add additional whipped cream and/or chocolate shavings.

Serves 4 - Top with Ice cream!

11/2 cups Stone's Green Ginger Wine

4 tbspn chopped crystallized ginger

41/2 tbspns plain flour

Pre-heat oven to 180?C (350?F). Mix together the sugar and butter until creamy and fluffy. Add the beaten eggs. Sift in the flour and salt alternately with the Stone's Green Ginger Wine. Ensure all is well mixed before adding the chopped ginger. Mix well and spoon batter into a greased 9" square slab tin. For the topping, mix ingredients together with fingers to a crumbly consistency and sprinkle over the batter in the baking tin. Bake for about 40-45 minutes. Leave in tin for a few minutes to cool, then turn out onto a paper-covered rack. Once you have turned cake out, turn it back immediately so that the topping is facing upwards.

As a morning, afternoon or late-night coffee-cake, this is delicious served plain or sliced and buttered.
