Horse's Neck

This is the original ginger ale and whiskey drink that people go for when when they make a Jack and Ginger. The idea of the Horse's Neck is to serve it in a tall highball glass with a long curl of lemon peel. I didn't have ginger ale, but Barritts ginger beer can be a spicy improvement. It's drier than ginger ale, but not as sharp as some ginger beers.

  • 2 oz. blended whiskey
  • ginger ale (or ginger beer)
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • lemon rind peeled in a spiral
Begin by using a citrus peeler to get a long curl of lemon peel and settling it in a tall glass of ice. Build the drink in the glass with whiskey and ginger beer first, stirring slowly to blend ingredients. Top with bitters.
