Whiskey is beloved all around the world, but one of the ways that it is most enjoyed is with a little bit of fresh soda. One of the most popular sodas that it is enjoyed with, specifically, is ginger ale.
That is why the Jameson and Ginger is such a staple when it comes to “whiskey and soda” drinks, and is arguably one of the more favorite and popular mixed whiskey drinks in the world. There are variations on the drink, but it is nonetheless a whiskey staple. It is certainly hard to turn down a whiskey and soda, especially a Jameson and ginger ale, because they complement each other taste-wise so well.
- 1 ½ ounces of Jameson
- 5 ounces of ginger ale
- Lime wedge
- Pour the whiskey into a highball glass filled with ice.
- Fill with ginger ale.
- Squeeze some juice out of a lime wedge to give the drink that extra kick
- Highball glass
The buck is a drink of the cocktail family that involves a base spirit and a soda addition. In this manner, the Jameson and Ginger is of the buck family, similar to both the Moscow Mule and the Dark and Stormy. All of these drinks have been surprisingly resilient when it comes to cocktail relevance, as a solid liquor and soda combination seems to have stood the test of time more than other cocktail varieties.
There are some people who actually choose to replace the ginger ale with ginger beer, which obviously makes the drink a little heavier. This leads to the drink being a little different, but still gives it a great flavor. Lime wedges can be used as a garnish, and fresh lime juice also ensures the best taste possible. The Jameson and Ginger is a great way to drink some whiskey comfortably, without taking a shot or sipping on an old-fashioned. Its a sweet and relaxing drink that anyone can enjoy.
