JC’s note: anytime I want to put ginger in a recipe, I choose to use local Kentucky favorite Ale-8-One. While it’s fabulous to drink, it’s equally fabulous to cook with! You can interchangeably use Ale-8-One or Ale-8 Zero Sugar in the recipe. It’s purely your preference!

About Ale-8: Launched in July of 1926, Ale-8-One is the only Kentucky-invented soft drink still in existence. It was invented by G. L. Wainscott and was named via one of America’s first slogan contests at the Clark County Fair. “A Late One” – the winning entry – was a pun adopted for its witty description. From that, a Kentucky legacy transpired.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for roasting (roughly 2 tbsp)

4 tbsp. Ale-8-One

1.5 tbsp. minced garlic

1 tbsp. minced onion

2 tbsp. rosemary + sprigs for garnish
