Don’t Judge Me Mondays: Betsy’s Drink
Do you have a go to drink? What I mean by that is a drink that you will order out at a bar when you don’t know what to get or when someone is ordering for you….”oh just get me a (fill in the blank here)”. I realized a few years ago that as an adult I don’t have a go to drink. It seems to vary by season, location or whatever. I tend to be indecisive when it comes to inconsequential decisions (like picking a drink), go figure. My friend Betsy does have a go-to drink and I admit that sometimes I borrow (steal?) it when I don’t want to look at a menu but just don’t know what to order. It’s a whiskey and ginger ale and it’s so tasty! It’s simple, so any bar will have the ingredients. It’s also easy to dress up (with a top shelf whiskey) or dress down (house whiskey), isn’t too pricey, and goes down easy (but not too easy). See? It’s perfect!
Let’s get to Betsy’s Drink! 🙂
Start by filling a highball or scotch glass with ice. Then add half of the ginger ale and squeeze the juice of the lime quarter in.
Add the whiskey and top it off with the rest of the ginger all and stir.
Garnish with a small lime wedge if you like and enjoy!
