Ginger Ale, Whisky and Lime Drink
This drink is popular at Target Field, where the Minnesota Twins play. It is a perfect summer drink. It wasn’t until I realized how the flavors of ginger and lime would pair well with Vietnamese and Thai cuisine that a whole new world opened up. This would go well with Banh Mi or Vietnamese Noodle Bowl with Lemongrass Chicken. I like to use Two Gingers Whisky, but you can use any Irish Whisky you would like. I also like to use a fancier ginger ale/beer when available, but good old Canada Dry tastes great too. I used Fever Tree, but Trader Joe’s makes a really wonderful ginger beer around the holidays, so I use that when I can. I garnished with caramelized ginger and lime wedges, but those are really more for fun and optional.
