Drink of the Week: The Big Ginger
No, I'm not talking about some ginormous redhead.
This is the #1 specialty cocktail at the Local. And sadly, it's not named for its color. The name come from the main non-alcoholic ingredient, ginger ale. It's not a complex drink, with several shots of Jameson Irish Whiskey, ginger ale, ice, and lemon and lime wedges, but sometimes after a long day of work you don't really need a lot of complexities. It's well mixed, refreshing in the summertime, and a bargain at $6 when you consider it's whiskey-loaded (and can probably get you loaded as well).
