As Told By Ginger

I love ginger beverages, and by ginger beverages, I mean ginger beer.

It’s so refreshing and delicious. I’m not sure what it is about ginger beer that makes it so perfect for a drink, but I can’t get enough of it.

I love that the ginger flavor is strong and sweet, but it got a little kick to it. My only problem is the name. the ginger beverage has “beer” in the name, but no alcohol.

If that is not misleading, then I do not know what is. Also, I am aware that root beer exists, but that is beside the point.

On the contrary, I have no real reason to complain because ginger beer is delicious. That is why I made the ginger bourbon spritzer recipe.

In fact, I could go for a ginger beer bourbon spritzer right now. Side note, I never liked As Told By Ginger, but I thought that would be a clever header to use.

To all the As Told By Ginger fans, please do not be mad at me.

What Is The Best Bourbon To Mix With Ginger Ale?

The ginger bourbon spritzer recipe does not use ginger ale, however, ginger and whiskey are a great combination. That is why I created a recipe to make a ginger beer bourbon spritzer in the first place.

With that being said, ginger ale is no exception. Now, if I were to mix ginger ale with whiskey, then I would go with a bourbon whiskey.

Furthermore, this is the same type of whiskey that we are using for our recipe. The combination of the two ingredients is phenomenal.

What Is A Whiskey Ginger Ale Called?

Speaking of whiskey and ginger ale, when you mix the two together, the name of the drink is whiskey ginger ale. Also, this drink is pretty much the same thing as a whiskey highball cocktail.

Bourbon Is Needed

I love bourbon like Kel loves orange soda. If you do not get that reference, then you are too young to make this recipe.

What do I love about its bourbon? To be honest, bourbon is good by itself, but the number of awesome drinks that you can make with it is epic.

I don’t drink bourbon every day because I do not need to go to an AA meeting, but when I do drink it, I make sure to cherish every sip. It’s not a drink that you can just drink in a few seconds.

Speaking of AA meetings, I love making a good drink, which is why I make these recipes, but do not let me tempt you into drinking if you are trying to quit.

As much as I want everybody to try my recipes, I still have to be responsible with my platform.
