Klondike Cooler

So the Yukon region of Canada has to have a drink featuring Canadian whisky. The higher quality, the better in my opinion. Some may scoff at my Black Velvet 8-year-old reserve, but it is quite tame and plenty smooth for a ginger ale drink.

As the name suggests, it is a cooler for hotter days--something handed down from the great white North. The preparation of this drink is a little counter-intuitive. There's no shaker needed.
  • 2 oz. Canadian whisky
  • 2 oz. club soda
  • ginger ale
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • long lemon peel
Combine ginger ale (about 1 ounce) and sugar in a highball glass and stir gently until sugar is dissolved. Add whiskey and ice and stir until chilled. Add more ice and top with soda. Garnish with long lemon peel.
