This refreshing ginger ale-based drink dates back to the late 1800s and was originally a non-alcoholic thirst quencher. The dram of American whiskey was added later on, making this classic mixture what it is today. With only two ingredients, the sipper is an ideal Derby party cocktail.

Ginger ale
Garnish: Lemon peel
