Whiskey Ginger Cocktail

Whiskey Ginger Cocktail

Burnin' Beak Whiskey Ginger Cocktail

Irish whiskey, ginger ale and Burnin' Beak Green Ghost pepper jelly blend together perfectly in this refreshing cocktail that's super easy to make. Sometimes called an Irish Buck or Irish Mule, this classic cocktail dates back to the 19th century.

It's bubbly, refreshing, a little sweet and a little spicy. It's a favorite go-to for St. Patrick's Day but you can also enjoy it year-round.

The ginger ale gives it a spicy snap while the whiskey provides the smooth, warming blanket. The Green Ghost pepper jelly adds lime and mint flavors and a spicy kick. This is no boring cocktail!

Note: Any brand of Irish whiskey works well in this cocktail. And, ginger beer is an option for a stronger ginger flavor. 


Makes 1 cocktail



2 oz Irish whiskey (such as Jameson)

1 T Burnin' Beak Green Ghost pepper jelly

5 oz ginger ale

Lime wedges



1. Pour the whiskey into a highball glass. Add the pepper jelly and stir to combine (a fork or spoon works well).  

2. Fill glass with ice cubes and pour in the ginger ale.  

3. Add a lime slice to the rim. Option: Squeeze a lime slice into the glass for a tangier flavor.
