This highball's sobriquet comes from the name of its prime ingredient: Ale-8-one, (say it fast!). Ale-8-one comes from a very small bottler down in Winchester, Kentucky and the folks who drink it are all pretty much addicted. If you're hot to try it, you can order it online -- it really doesn't taste like much of anything that you've had before. In any case, I IMPROVED it! *.*

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces soda pop, Ale-8-one brand
  • 1 12 ounces dry gin
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 3 ice cubes


  1. In a crystal tumbler, drop in the ice cubes and squeeze the lime wedge over them -- drop the lime wedge into the glass.
  2. Pour in the gin and then the soda. Stir.
  3. Enjoy!
  4. NOTE: If you prefer vodka to gin, go for it!
