Our Dutch Ginger cocktail:

30ml genever (oude is better, but jonge will have a more neutral flavour)
30ml Bols Ginger (but any ginger liquer will do)
Cranberry juice

Fill a short glass with ice, add genever and Bols Ginger and top up with cranberry juice. Serve with a lime wedge.

Later, Ana tells the story of the curious disappearance of Trevaline Evans who failed to return to her antique’s shop on a busy Saturday afternoon. Plus a bonus Welsh lesson! (For any listeners in Wales, please send us pronunciation corrections and rarebit recipes).
