  • 3 ounces ginger ale (4 ounces for more ginger taste)
  • 1 lime wedge
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice)


  1. Add the whiskey and ice to a glass and stir to combine.
  2. Top with the ginger ale. Squeeze in the juice from the lime wedge and serve. Garnish with additional lime wedges or wheels
