Based on the ingredients you have, I recommend trying a cocktail that includes ginger ale and a type of liquor. I have found a cocktail that includes ginger ale, lime, and spiced rum. This cocktail is refreshing and has a subtle hint of spice from the rum, which complements the sweetness of the ginger ale.
