I used to drink beer, but know mostly into Zinfendel wine. But I love a "Gin Buck" before dinner. Ice in a Sling glass, 1.5 oz gin, 1 oz lemon juice, topped with ginger ale. With a straw. I'm no purist. My other favorite is 1 oz Southern Comfort, .5 Peach Brandy and then the ginger ale.
You probably all think I'm sick. LOL!
