Boston Cooler the real thing

Pat Duran


If you are lucky enough to get Vernor's gingerale in your area (a Detroit product). then you will have a truly authentic BOSTON COOLER. Otherwise with just any brand of golden gingerale you'll have to add a pinch of powdered ginger to cut the lemon flavor which is most outstanding and often overwhelming in any other brand.Cool and refreshing in this hot wather.
