There’s not much to say about the Gin Buck other than it’s a tasty cocktail and it uses gin so it must be good right?
How to Make a Gin Buck
This simple cocktail doesn’t use a lot of ingredients making it an excellent go to when you have limited options in your home bar. If you like gin drinks, another great simple gin cocktail to try is the White Lady.
Here’s what you’ll need for the Gin Buck:
- Gin (I tend to use Old Tom or London Dry)
- Lemon Juice
- Ginger Ale
- Lemon slice for garnish (if desired)
To prepare this cocktail, gather up the ingredients, add the gin and lemon juice to a glass of your choice (you can make this short or tall depending on how much Ginger Ale you want and whether you want it to taste stronger or weaker). Give it a stir, add some ice and top with Ginger Ale.
Garnish with a lemon slice and you are good to go! nice and simple right?
The Roly Poly you see in these Gin Buck pictures was produced in the 50’s and 60’s by Federal Glass. This particular style is called Harlequin and features a black and gold diamond design. I have the full set along with the original carrier which makes these super sexy for serving up cocktails. You can find them on Etsy, Ebay and at your local antique malls if you want some.
Hope you enjoy the cocktail!
