Jameson and Ginger Ale is a smooth and bubbly cocktail made with Jameson Irish Whiskey, bottled ginger ale and plenty of fresh squeezed lime juice.
Classic Jameson and Ginger Ale
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 whiskey of choice. It’s crazy smooth, triple-distilled blended Irish whiskey without any funny, lingering aftertaste.
On our last two adventures in Ireland, we toured the Jameson Distillery in Dublin and picked up a bottle of Jameson to take home. Besides the special reserved featured in this post we also bought a bottle of Jameson Black Barrel. So good!
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 this unique whiskey with the exceptional smoothness. It’s also a great drink to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
Jameson & Ginger Ale takes only minutes to make.
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 a minimum of two or three slices of lime into the glass. Don’t skimp on the lime, it really makes this drink. Finally top with another splash of ginger ale and serve immediately. Cheers!
Jameson Irish Whiskey Since 1708
John Jameson created this blended fine-grain whiskey more than 200 years ago. His whiskey was the first triple distilled whiskey. This legacy is how they achieve the signature smoothness and perfect balance of spicy and nutty with hints of sweet sherry and vanilla notes.
According to Irish law, Irish Whiskey must spend at least 3 years maturing in Ireland before it can be called or labeled Irish whiskey.
Thanks for PINNING!
