The Presbyterian Whiskey Cocktail is a refreshing drink but one with a kick; this is due to the cask strength Makers Mark I used. Back in the day the Presbyterian was considered a woman’s drink because the majority of the men during the 50s and 60s drank their whiskey neat. This recipe was straight out of The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook, by Albert W.A. Schmit.
Please provide your comments or thoughts on the cocktail.
- 3 Tbsp. Kentucky bourbon or Makers Mark Cask Strength
- ¼ cup club soda
- ¼ cup ginger ale
- Lemon peel
- Fill a highball glass with ice and pour the bourbon over the ice.
- Add the club soda and ginger ale.
- Twist the lemon peel, releasing the oil in the peel. Rub the peel around the rim of the glass and place the peel in the glass.
