Even though this Whiskey Swirl is made with whiskey the sodas lighten it up; some grapefruit soda and ginger ale make this a refreshing cocktail.
Servings: 1 or more
- 1 part whiskey , rye, bourbon, Scotch or Irish will all work
- 1 part Squirt® (grapefruit soda)
- 1 part ginger ale
- 2 to 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, and stir
Then add an extra squeeze of lime juice on top.
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.
