Whiskey pineapple cocktail

Is anyone else down for a whiskey pineapple cocktail situation this summer? Order up!

This cocktail is inspired by one I had a hometown joint, the Yonkers Whiskey House. This place really turned me onto whiskey cocktails, but specifically the combo of whiskey and pineapple together. It's a great fit for drinkers that want something strong, but prefer some sweetness, so it's the perfect summer sipper. If you want to take it up a notch, sub the ginger ale for a super tart ginger beer.

  • 6 oz. can pineapple juice
  • 3 oz. bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 8 oz. ginger ale

In a cocktail shaker combine the pineapple juice, bourbon whiskey, and lemon juice with some ice. Shake hard, and split the mixture between two glasses filled with ice. Top off each glass with the ginger ale and a thin lemon slice.
