Squid Mixes: Rum Buck


Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we have our Thanksgiving beverage.  One sip of the rum buck - light rum, lime juice and ginger ale - and my wife proclaimed "very nice."  We may play around with ginger ale vs. ginger beer but we have a winner.  My recipe came from The New York Bartender's Guide.

Bucks are a family of drinks combining ginger ale or beer with a citrus juice and a base liquor.  The Moscow Mule, which uses vodka, is probably the most famous example.  With gin, it's a Ginger Rogers.

    1. Earlier this year, I experimented with homemade sodas, including my own root beer. If I ever get back to it, ginger ales and ginger beers will be highest priority.

  3. Well, I like rum, but I don't know if I'm interested in ginger ale.

    1. Ginger ale is definitely the preferred soda at my house, unless one counts seltzer.
