Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 teaspoon grenadine
  • lime slice (or wedges, to garnish)
  • 10 ounces ice, more if needed


  1. Combine 2 Tbsp. bourbon and 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice in a cocktail shaker; fill with ice. Cover with lid, and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled (about 30 seconds). Strain into a 10-oz. glass filled with ice. Top with 6 Tbsp. of your favorite ginger ale or ginger beer.
  2. Drizzle with 1/4 teaspoons grenadine. with fresh lime slices or wedges. Garnish with fresh lime slices or wedges.
  3. Note: If you can find them use good quality ginger ale and grenadine. I love Fever Tree and Jack Rudy's small batch grenadine.

Good cocktail. I measured it exactly as written and it came out featuring the bourbon, and wasn't too sweet. Will certainly make again! Thanks for the cocktail momaphet!
