Whiskey Mac (MacDonald) Cocktail Recipe

Want a simple but refreshing summer beverage that includes your favorite spirit?

Consider the Whisky Mac, short of Whisky MacDonald. The idea of it comes to me from Reader Raymond who quips:

Funny how you say, you have discovered Bourbon I have devoured 3 bottles I have only tasted cheap Cougar in case I did not like it. But I kind of like it, so I will now start to explore. One thing I know is, I have been drinking whisky mac and I have put on tons of weight. I find it difficult to run, I keep spilling it.

I recommended a flask for our enterprising exercising imbiber. 🙂

So what’s in a Whisky Mac?

It has two ingredients – 1½ ounces of Scotch whisky mixed with 1½ ounces of green ginger wine.

Can’t get simpler than that!

Pour both into a single glass, no ice, and you have yourself the simplest cocktail ever short of scotch neat.

As for finding green gingner wine, I’ve never purchased green ginger wine though if I were, chances are I’d find a bottle of Stone’s Original Green Ginger Wine because it’s available in many stores and they may be the only producer of green ginger wine!
