Use a blended scotch that’s not too mild, such as Compass Box Great King Street or The Famous Grouse Smoky Black, in this cocktail from Michael Dietsch's "Whiskey: A Spirited Story with 75 Classic & Original Cocktails."
- 2 ounces blended scotch (such as Compass Box Great King Street or The Famous Grouse Smoky Black)
- 3/4 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
- Ginger beer, chilled, to top
- Garnish: lime wedge
Add the scotch and lime juice to a highball glass full of ice.
Top with the ginger beer and stir briefly and gently to combine.
Garnish with a lime wedge.
