    tablespoons Bourbon

    tablespoons ginger ale (this is a 1/3 cup plus a splash) or 6 tablespoons ginger beer (this is a 1/3 cup plus a splash)
  • 14
    teaspoon grenadine
  • lime slice (or wedges, to garnish)
  • 10
    ounces ice, more if needed


  • 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.
  • Drizzle with 1/4 teaspoons grenadine. with fresh lime slices or wedges. Garnish with fresh lime slices or wedges.
  • Note: If you can find them use good quality ginger ale and grenadine. I love Fever Tree and Jack Rudy's small batch grenadine.
