How To Make A Gin Buck Cocktail Recipe

gin buck gingerale highball with iceGin is not only my favourite spirit, but it is also the base liquor for your classic martini and many gin-juice cocktails.  The Gin Buck is no excuse or exception and is a very nice change of pace from your standard highballs like the regular Gin & Tonic, which I drink regularly. This easy highball and the Gin Rickey are closely related, with the only difference being the cocktail mixer topping up the glass.

Some might call this a Gin and Ginger. Others might call it a Poor Man’s Moscow Mule… especially when the Gin Buck is served in just a highball glass instead of that fancy copper mug.


  • 2 oz Gin (I prefer Tanqueray London Dry Gin)
  • Ginger Ale
  • Lemon Wedge


  • Fill highball glass half way with ice
  • Add Gin
  • Top with Ginger Ale
  • Give 2 gentle stirs ( Don’t upset the bubbles “CO2″ in the Ginger Ale)
  • Garnish with Lemon wedge
  • Serve and Enjoy!
