Chinnery Gin Buck

Turns out tonic is not the only mixer that works with gin. A buck is a mixed drink involving ginger ale or ginger beer and some kind of citrus juice.

This is our version.

Chinnery Gin Buck


  • 35ml Chinnery Gin
  • 100ml ginger ale
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Lime wheel, to garnish
  • Ice


Pour one measure of Chinnery Gin (35ml) into a highball glass. Add the juice of half a lime. Fill the glass with ice and top off with ginger ale. Garnish with a wedge of lime or a lime wheel.

Notes and variations

  • There are many ginger ales out there, some with a real kick of ginger that gets right up your nose, and some that barely whisper. Try a few different varieties to figure out your tolerance for this potent spice.
