Barkers of Geraldine Ginger Smash

Much loved New Zealand fruit syrup Barker’s Of Geraldine have recently made their debut into Australia and what better way to celebrate than with a cocktail? Made on the family farm on New Zealand’s South Island the syrups are 100% squeezed syrups (no concentrate) with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The syrups are available to purchase from Coles Supermarkets.

Ginger is always a favourite in my cocktail recipes and when it comes to this cocktail it could work for Summer or winter weddings- the ginger tang is always refreshing and warming! Using vodka, fresh ginger, ginger beer and of course the pure ginger syrup this Ginger Smash is a fantastic cocktail Friday~


  • 30 ml vodka
  • 30ml Barker’s Lemon, Honey & Ginger Fruit Syrup
  • 3 slices fresh ginger or 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup ginger ale or ginger beer


  1. Smash or muddle the ginger with the vodka and syrup.
  2. Pour into an ice filled hi-ball glass.
  3. Top with the ginger ale or ginger beer.
