The other day I was rummaging through my kitchen looking for a nice cocktail to make.  I found some bourbon, apple juice and ginger ale.  I don’t know about you but it sounded like a good time to me.  I combined the ingredients and made a cocktail.  It had a nice little zip from the ginger ale.  Since it was made with apples I figured I would call it the New York Zip.  It was delicious.

New York Zip

  • 2 oz bourbon whiskey
  • 3 oz apple juice
  • 3 oz ginger ale

Combine the ingredients in a rocks glass full of ice, stir and serve.  I garnished mine with a nice slice of apple.  A simple yet delicious drink.

It was tasty and didn’t scream whiskey at you when you threw it back.

A delicious drink.
