Ginger ale has been around a while. Europeans probably brought it to the U.S. in the 18th or 19th century, but the big bar breakthrough came during Prohibition. Ginger really is a great taste -- spicy, refreshing and exhilarating. It combines well with lime, as in ABSOLUT Buck, and works well solo as a nonalcoholic drink.
Fill a rocks glass with ice cubes. Add all ingredients. Garnish with lime.
