Ginger Beer has long been a favorite non alcoholic beverage of my husband’s, so when Reed’s asked me to sample their Ginger Beer products I was excited to experiment with not only drink concoctions but food recipes too! I posted my recipe for Roasted Ginger Beer Can Chicken earlier this week and I have a fun drink recipe to share tomorrow for my husband’s birthday too! I love how these Honey & Ginger Beer Cornbread Muffins turned out- with the ginger and honey being a match made in heaven!
