Created in honor of NFR, this cocktail is made for cowboys, ranchers and their fans alike. Much like rodeo tradition, whisky with ginger ale is also a beloved classic, and for good reason. This particular recipe dresses up the cocktail we know and love, and elevates it to new heights using high-quality ingredients and a little extra flair.
Pendelton Blended Canadian Whisky is smooth yet complex, and combines beautifully with the spicy/sweet ginger ale. A couple dashes of aromatic bitters highlight the richness of the spirit, and the simple garnish keeps things light and clean.
1 ½ oz. Pendelton Blended Canadian Whisky
4 oz. Mixwell Ginger Ale
2 dashes aromatic bitters
Mint sprig and orange slices for garnish
Combine ingredients over ice and stir. Garnish with a sprig of mint and orange slices. Serve.
