The Rye Presbyterian
Why is this simple yet refreshing cocktail called a Presbyterian? No really, I'm asking - I really have no idea! There are a few variations, most notably the substitution of scotch or bourbon for the rye, but if its got a mix of whisky/whiskey, club soda & ginger ale, its a Presbyterian. Also sometimes shortened and referred to as a "Press". Regardless of the name or whiskey you choose, it's simple and refreshing. Perfect for a summer celebration! Add a few dashes of bitters for some added depth.
* 2 ounces Whiskey, Scotch or Bourbon
* 2 ounces club soda
* 2 ounces ginger ale
* 2 dashes Angostura bitters
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add whiskey, club soda, ginger ale, and bitters. Stir and serve. (Doesn't get much easier!)
