Other Whisky Ginger Variations
The Whisky Ginger is a go-to for many because it’s light, sweet, and easy to drink. Crown Royal is one of the most popular whisky options, but you can try other whiskies to alter the flavor of the drink. Another great whiskey to use is Jameson Irish Whiskey, which has a slightly sharper and spicier bite that many people enjoy. Jack Daniels is another popular choice. If you prefer a sweeter flavor, try a bourbon.
For a spicier ginger cocktail, use ginger beer instead of ginger ale. Whiskey and ginger beer is a variation on the Moscow Mule, often called an Irish Mule or a Kentucky mule depending on the whiskey you choose. Experiment with different versions to find your favorite whisky and ginger combination!
