One of the easiest cocktails to make, the Whisky Ginger is to Whisky what the Gin and Tonic is to Gin.
These two work perfectly together. The whisky bringing in spice and oak notes, and the ginger ale bring a delicate amount of ginger spice as well as the sweetness and bubbles!
Really simple to make, this creates a deliciously refreshing longer drink. With a squeeze of lime, its really the perfect summer drink (but also one which is easily enjoyed all year!).
When made with Bourbon or Brandy, this is also known as a 'Horse's neck' cocktail (or sometime 'Horse's Neck with a kick'.
50ml Whisky (Rye, Bourbon, Scotch or Irish - whatever you like)
150ml Ginger Ale
A wedge of lime
Fill a highball glass with ice and add the whisky and ginger ale. Stir gently. Gently squeeze the wedge of lime over the top of the glass and then drop in.
