Not a whiskey fan? Think again! This refreshing, 3-ingredient Ginger Whiskey Cocktail recipe might just change your mind.
I’m a total whiskey fan.
Some of my favorite whiskey cocktails are these Bourbon Apple Cider Cocktails, a classic Old Fashioned made with maple syrup and this Gold Rush Cocktail made with bourbon and Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur.
But when I’m craving a super fast whiskey libation, nothing beats a long, tall glass of this refreshing Ginger Whiskey Cocktail.
What ingredients do I need for this Ginger Whiskey Cocktail?
Whether you call it a ginger whiskey or a whiskey ginger, this cocktail couldn’t be simpler to throw together after a long day. You only need three ingredients, so grab your ginger ale, whiskey and some fresh lime wedges, and you’re ready for happy hour.
The only time I’m a stickler for a certain type of whiskey is when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around. Since everyone is a little bit Irish on March 17th, Irish whiskey is a must in this Ginger Whiskey Cocktail on St. Paddy’s Day.
I’m not a huge whiskey fan. Will I like this Ginger Whiskey Cocktail?
Not feeling the whiskey love? I know whiskey can be a bit polarizing. Either you love it or can’t stomach it.
I like to think this Ginger Whiskey Cocktail is a happy medium for those non-whiskey lovers out there. The bubbly ginger ale mellows the whiskey and keeps the cocktail’s flavor light and bright. Stir in a squeeze of fresh lime juice, and your happy hour cocktail is good to go.
This Ginger Whiskey Cocktail can also be the star of a DIY drink station.
