Unless you have been drinking in Kansas City, Missouri odds are you haven't heard of this wonderful cocktail. This twist on a classic "horse's neck" has become very popular regionally over the last twenty years, for good reason. Its crisp and spicy flavors work great in summer as well as winter, and it appeals to a wide variety of drinkers. Additionally using real ginger beer helps soothe the stomach, meaning less rough mornings after a few too many. Now there are several versions of this drink, using blended or rye whiskeys with a various brands of bitters and ginger beer. My favorite version uses Jameson Irish whiskey, Cock and Bull ginger beer, and orange bitters.
To create a Horsefeathers: pour 2 oz of Jameson over ice, add two dashes orange bitters, top with 4 ounces of Cock n' Bull. Stir, and garnish with a lemon if you wish. Easy to make, delicious and classy. With our current special on Jameson, you can make a dozen cocktails for less than $3.50 each. Cheers!
