Dating back to the late 19th century, a Horse’s Neck was a refreshing glass of nonalcoholic ginger ale. Later, a jigger of bourbon or rye was added. It’s a perfect Derby-party beverage, since it only calls for two ingredients.
- 2 ounces bourbon, brandy or American rye whiskey
- ginger ale, to top
- Garnish: lemon peel
Add the whiskey into a Collins glass over ice.
Top with ginger ale.
Garnish with a long strip of lemon peel.
