A Jameson and Ginger cocktail is pure perfection in its simplicity. The smooth Irish whiskey, a ting of lime juice and the bite of ginger ale all come together in this gorgeous glass. It’s doesn’t get any easier than this!

I am taking you all back to Ireland with me on this post again!

When I was in Dublin, I hit the Jameson distillery and that is where I tasted my first Jameson and Ginger.

At the end of the tour of the distillery the options for tasting are either straight-up or with ginger ale.

Since I’ve put Jameson shots behind me these days, I had to go with the ginger ale concoction.

Now, I have always been a Jameson fan, maybe too much of a fan back in my early bar hopping days when my boyfriend at the time would drink it like water. 

Thankfully Jameson and I are on much better terms now, especially since my discovery of this cocktail.

Who knew Jameson and ginger ale made such lovely partners?

If I could drink anything on St. Patrick’s Day, it would definitely be this cocktail.

The crisp ginger ale is the perfect soothing note immediately following the woody and nutty Jameson whiskey.

I have trouble stopping with just one.

I might be sipping on one as I write this post…

Don’t worry, not early in the morning when this post actually goes live…
