The fiery classic – the Whiskey and Ginger

Set your spirit on fire this June with the Whiskey and Ginger cocktail; a firm favourite around the world for more than two hundred years.

First appearing in an American cocktail book from the late 1800s titled, “The Mixicologist” by C.F. Lawlor, the Whiskey and Ginger is a simple build-and-stir cocktail perfect for the cooler months.

Balancing the whiskey flavours effortlessly with the sweet and fiery notes of ginger ale and rounding off the recipe with two dashes of ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters gives this tipple its easy drinkability.

It's one thing telling you how easy the recipe is to mix, but until you try it yourself, you’ll never know. Go on, give it a mix.
