Irish Buck Cocktail

Irish Buck Cocktail

Cheers, foodie friends! It’s your lucky day. I’ve got for you a refreshing and super simple cocktail with good, basic ingredients and a tasty balance of flavor and pizazz!

Lads and lasses alike will love this one, since the only fruity flavor comes from the lime juice but it still has a hint of sweetness. A splash of ginger ale and Irish whiskey (or a little more than a splash – it’s St. Patrick’s Day after all!) make this cocktail a fun way for two to toast. Also included is a pitcher-sized recipe if you’re quenching the thirst of more than a few!

    This cocktail sounds delicious! I’m not usually much of a whisky fan but combined with lime and ginger ale (two of my favourite add ins!), I think it would be amazing!

    Lime drinks are always welcome here. Glad that you did the pitcher recipe and the 2 drink-something here for everybody. This is the perfect libation for St Patrick’s Day and spring-refreshing.

    Oh this sounds delicious and I love how simple it is. I get overwhelmed easily with cocktails! I wish I had this when I was in Ireland last spring, it would’ve beat the many beers I tried and tried and tried to love to no avail!

    I’m intrigued by this–I’m not a huge whiskey drinker, but think it might be tempered by the lime and ginger ale.

    This looks perfect – manly enough to put a wee bit of hair on your chest, yet with the lime and ginger ale…I think it would be relatively tamed. Looks great!

    I am having one of these right now (minus the lime wedge). I am *in love*! Don’t tell my wife about this, though.
