Horses Neck Cocktail Recipe

HORSE`S NECK COCKTAIL Recipe

The Horse’s Neck cocktail is a classic cocktail that originated at the end of the 19th century and, as a typical highball, belongs to the long drinks. It is made from Cognac (sometimes Bourbon Whiskey) and Ginger Ale. Optionally, you can add 1-2 dashes of Angostura bitters to give the cocktail more depth. The drink owes its name to a thinly sliced, long lemon spiral, the end of which protrudes from the glass and is reminiscent of a horse’s neck.

  • 45 ml/ 1½ oz. Cognac
  • 120 ml/ 3 oz. Ginger Ale
  • Dash of Angostura Bitters (optional)

METGOD
