Tonight's Cocktail - Disgraceful Press

Tonight for The Cocktail Hour we'll be featuring a cocktail that I like to think I invented, but that is so similar to an existing drink that I open myself up to lawsuits if I actually claim to have invented it.


So here's the drink I invented. I call it "The Disgraceful Press," because it's similar to a ginger press and it was invented at Disgraceland. The main thing you may not have is the ginger juice, but it's essential. I used this from The Ginger People. It needs to be strong.


1.5 oz rye whisky
Fizzy ginger drink (ginger ale will do, but I like the Fizzy Izzy ginger drink)
1/2 tsp Ginger Juice

Stir the rye, Ginger Juice and a couple of healthy squeezes of lime in a rocks glass with rocks. Top with the fizzy ginger drink.  Garnish with lime wedge.

Two words: Yum.
