Classic Whiskey Ginger
Call it a “whiskey ginger” or an “Irish buck,” they are essentially the same great drink. The basic but delicious cocktail contains Irish whiskey and ginger ale to create a tall, refreshing drink, much like the whiskey tonic or classic highball.
The combination of any whiskey with any light soda is hard to beat. These drinks are easy to mix up at a moment’s notice, they are budget-friendly and, quite simply, a perfect flavor combination. If you are seeking an easy way to casually enjoy your favorite Irish whiskey, then whip up a whiskey ginger.
Whiskey and ginger ale is a semi-sweet, tall drink that is pleasant. The lime squeeze is essential as it is that finishing touch that marries the whiskey and soda perfectly.
