The key to making a great Presbyterian is keeping things simple—there’s no need for homemade ginger syrup or fancy ginger beers. The cocktail calls for two simple ingredients: ginger ale and blended scotch. It’s one of the easiest and best ways to enjoy scotch—aside from neat.
- Add cubed ice to a highball glass, followed by the scotch.
- Top with ginger ale and stir with a bar spoon to incorporate.
Mix it Up
We recommend trying different blended scotches such as Black Bottle, Bank Note, Dewars or Famous Grouse. If you add fresh lime juice, the cocktail becomes a Mamie Taylor.
A tried and true classic, this Highball is made with a measure of Scotch whisky, cubed ice and an effervescent topper of soda water. While we prefer to use blended scotch instead of heady, peaty single malt spirits, there’s a scotch and soda pairing for every palate. You’ll just have to try them all. What a chore.
