Matcha Ginger Cream

This post is part of partnership with Barrow's Intense. Learn more about their intense ginger liqueur here!

I have been wanting to try Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur for some time, so I was really excited when they sent me a bottle recently to experiment with. I love ginger in general, and the more intense, the better!

Barrow’s Intense has a pure, fresh, spicy ginger flavor and is delicious on its own, and makes for a great after dinner drink - or drizzled over ice cream for dessert and digestif in one. 😇 After enjoying some over vanilla ice cream the other night, I was inspired to create a dessert drink with a matcha + pear twist. 🍐
