Jameson & Ginger Ale ~ a smooth and bubbly grown-up drink made with Jameson Irish Whiskey, bottled ginger ale and plenty of fresh squeezed lime juice.
Just popping in for a quick post today! I don’t often share these kind of recipes, mostly because we don’t drink often (enough!) But when I do, Jameson is my liquor of choice. It’s a crazy smooth, balanced whiskey without any funny, lingering aftertaste.
On our last two adventures in Ireland, we toured the Jameson Distillery in Dublin. At the end of the tour, the Jameson staff share a wee nip of the spirits with the group. All the grownups can either sample Jameson straight up, on ice, or with ginger ale and lime as I have served it here. This is a refreshing, bright and delicious way to enjoy whiskey and perhaps a great way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
Add ice to your highball glass (taller than the old-fashioned glass), then a shot of Jameson Irish Whiskey.
Add ginger ale leaving a little space at the top. Lightly stir to combine. You don’t have to be a mixologist to make this delicious drink!
Squeeze two, or three slices of lime into the glass. Don’t skimp on the lime – it really makes this drink. Then top with another splash of ginger ale and serve immediately!
PIN for later!
- 1 ounce Jameson Irish Whiskey
- Bottled ginger ale
- 1/2 lime, sliced or cut into wedges
- ice for serving
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add a "shot" of Jameson. Add ginger ale leaving a little room at the top of the glass. Gently stir the drink then squeeze in the lime juice, toss in the lime wedges, then top off with a splash of ginger ale. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Use approximately 1 part Jameson to 3 parts ginger ale.

Jameson is also great straight from the bottle, or served over ice. Always a favorite in our family!
