This is a non alcoholic version of Horse's Neck. Dating back to the 1890s, Horse's Neck was a non-alcoholic mixture of ginger ale, ice and lemon peel. By the 1910s, brandy, sometimes bourbon would be added for a 'Horse's Neck with a Kick' or '-- Stiff'. The non-alcoholic version was still served in upstate New York in the late fifties or early sixties, but eventually it was phased out.
- 4 ounces ginger ale
- 1⁄2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 dashes angustora bitters
- lime peel, to garnish (optional)
- Shake all ingredients together with ice.
- Strain into a glass and serve, or you may serve with the ice.
- Garnish with lime peel if desired.
Very delightful drink! I made it as given & must admit that I like the idea of straining it before serving, mostly because I never liked my drinks getting watered down with the melting ice, although that doesn't happen much anymore now that I usually finish it off rather quickly! Anyway, I loved your drink & will be making it again, for sure! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
