Locally, the Maydale Bottling Co. of Maynard, Massachusetts, located on Glendale Street (hence “Maydale”) was renowned for its golden ginger ale from its founding in 1899 until its formulas and customer lists were sold to Chelmsford Ginger Ale Company in the 1960s.
Popular mixed drinks:
Dark and Stormy: dark rum carefully poured atop ginger beer, with wedge of lime
Moscow Mule: vodka and ginger beer, wedge of lime, traditionally served in a copper cup
Kentucky Mule: bourbon and ginger beer with lemon wedge and fresh mint leaves
Mexican Mule: tequila, salt on the rim of the glass
....and the list goes on. Sweetened lime juice works in place of or in addition to fresh lime.
