Gin Buck

Gin Buck cocktail with lemon juice and ginger ale

A “buck” is an old-fashioned name for a drink that involves ginger ale or ginger beer and citrus juice. We think the Gin Buck is the most perfect incarnation of this category.

Ingredients

Instructions

Squeeze the juice from a lemon wedge into an ice-filled glass, and then toss that gnarly wedge right in there (you want all those tasty essential oils). Top with gin and ginger ale and stir to mix.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
