The 42 Buck Cocktail Recipe
The Buck is a forgotten class of cocktail, from a more simple time. It is a strong drink served with lots of citrus and ginger ale, which once distinguished it from a Highball which in ancient times at least, never contained citrus. Those rules have long since been broken, but regardless, the 42 Buck is a snappy and pleasing wee number for those days when you need a drink that asks little and delivers a lot.
45ml 42BELOW Vodka
150ml ginger ale or ginger beer
A whole lemon, quartered
1. Fill a highball glass with ice and squeeze in lemon wedges. Leave lemon wedges in the glass.
2. Add 42 Below Pure vodka and top with ginger ale or ginger beer.
Note: You may replace the 42BELOW Vodka with other Vodka brands, but the taste might vary.
