​ Try this ‘Irish Buck’ cocktail

17 Mar 2024 by Ted Escobedo   1 min read
There’s something refreshing, both literally and figuratively, about the simplicity of a highball, whether it’s the bracing bitterness of a Gin & Tonic or the warm spice of a Ginger Ale Highball. But if you add a little squirt of citrus to the latter, it transforms into a buck. Technically, a buck is any mix of ginger ale (or ginger beer), citrus juice and a spirit. This Irish Buck, then, is a mix of Irish whiskey, ginger ale and lime juice, served in a tall glass over ice.

1 1/2 ounces Irish whiskey
1/4-ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
2 ounces ginger ale, chilled, to top
Garnish: lime wheel
Add the whiskey and lime juice into a Collins glass filled with ice.
Top with the ginger ale and stir gently and briefly to combine.
Garnish with a lime wheel.
