Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple, like in this favorite Ginger Ale cocktail, also known as a Gin Buck. Quick and easy to make, as well as easy on the palate, this light, and bubbly cocktail employs gin and ginger ale to provide a refreshing “kick” that will become your happy hour go-to!
A buck refers to a drink made with liquor, citrus juice, and ginger ale or ginger beer, and has many varieties made by simply subbing the liquor used. Its simplicity makes it super easy to order at a bar or restaurant or whip up at home. If this is a favorite of yours, give the Moscow Mule with Gin a try!
