Whiskey Swirl

Over the next week the husbands will be posting some favorite Father’s Day recipes. First up is a lovely libation from the bartender of the group, Phil. And be sure to check out his Gr8 Bar Tip at the end of the post!

Whiskey SwirlFather’s Day is coming up and we generally think of beer and barbecue. But if you want to treat the man in your life to something a little different, try this delicious concoction. Even though it is made with whiskey, the sodas lighten it up and make it the perfect afternoon cocktail.

Whiskey Swirl


  • 1 part whiskey – rye, bourbon, Scotch or Irish will all work
  • 1 part Squirt® (grapefruit soda)
  • 1 part ginger ale
  • 2-3 squeezes fresh lime juice, to your taste


Grab an old-fashioned or highball glass (depends on how large a cocktail you want), add some ice, then the ingredients, stir, then add an extra squeeze of lime juice on top.


Gr8 Tip:

You can also substitute in rum, but I prefer whiskey for my taste. The whiskey adds much more depth of flavor. Also, you can muddle in some fresh mint at the beginning, especially if using rum.

Gr8 Household Bar Tip:

Save the nicer cork stoppers from your single malt whiskeys, ryes, bourbons, tequilas, etc. Use them to cork left over wines, they seal better and are much easier to remove. Just be sure to select one that fits snugly.
