A simple 3-ingredient whiskey cocktail that’s slightly sweet and a bit citrusy!



  • 1 ½ ounces whiskey
  • 3 ounces ginger ale
  • Lime wedges


Fill a highball glass with ice.

Pour whiskey over ice.

Top whiskey with ginger ale and give it a brief stir.

Squeeze a lime wedge into the glass then drop the wedge into the glass and serve.


Optional: muddle a few pieces of mint with a dash of sugar in the bottom of your glass before filling with ice for an herby upgrade.
