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! *.*
- 4 ounces soda pop, Ale-8-one brand
- 1 1⁄2 ounces dry gin
- 1 lime wedge
- 3 ice cubes
- In a crystal tumbler, drop in the ice cubes and squeeze the lime wedge over them -- drop the lime wedge into the glass.
- Pour in the gin and then the soda. Stir.
- NOTE: If you prefer vodka to gin, go for it!
