In Like a Lion (makes 1)
1 1/2 oz of your favorite Gin or Whiskey
1 glass of ice
1 good quality Ginger Ale, such as Boylan’s
1/8 of a Blood Orange (regular oranges are fine too)
Squeeze the juice out of one section of orange into a glass with as much or as little ice as you like. If using mint, crush a few leaves between your fingers and add to the glass. Top with alcohol of choice and fill with ginger ale. Garnish with the same orange wedge.
I encourage you to try it both ways at least once–we originally thought the gin would be better but ended up preferring the whiskey.
~ Note the above comment, kernelsandseeds “encourages” you to try both ways at least once or twice, or five times until you really know which one you prefer…ha! Nice. Love learning new things……
