Jameson & Ginger

I am taking you all back to Ireland with me on this post again! When we were in Dublin, we 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…).

Really, these cocktails are dangerously drinkable…

  1. Fill a highball glass with ice. Add in Jameson, ginger ale, and lime juice and stir with a long spoon to combine. Garnish with a piece of candied ginger.

Pin this Jameson & Ginger recipe for later!

    Not big on Jameson but like ginger ale as a mixer. Add that slice of lime and mmmmm!

    Looks like a winning combination to me! Have you tried it with Ginger beer?

      No I haven’t! That sounds AMAZING. I am trying it tonight!
