The beauty of this cocktail is that it can be customized to your taste preferences: from a smooth and mellow bourbon to a smoky and peaty scotch, the choice of whiskey allows for your own personalized drinking experience while new explorers to the world of whiskey will appreciate how the sweetness and effervescence of the ginger ale can help mellow out the strong flavors of whiskey.
