Horsefeather

Horsefeather cocktail with whiskey, ginger beer, angostura bitters, and a lemon wedge

The Horsefeather is an easy-drinking whiskey highball that is the pride and joy of bartenders in Lawrence, Kansas. A twist on the Horse’s Neck, it’s a staple at any bar in town.

Unlike the Horse’s Neck, the Horsefeather insists on whiskey and ginger ale – no substitutions! It also replaces the fussy lemon twist with a squeeze of fresh lemon, so it’s easier to make for a crowd.

Given its origins, an American whiskey is best here. We found this recipe on the PUNCH, where they recommend Rieger’s Kansas City Whiskey from nearby Kansas City, Missouri.

Ingredients

Instructions

Build in a tall, ice-filled glass in the order given. Squeeze the wedge of lemon over the drink, and toss it in for garnish. Serve with a straw.

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
