The Horsefeather

Drink: The Horsefeather

The Horsefeather is simple to make — so simple, in fact, that you probably already have its four ingredients in your kitchen right now. All you need is whiskey, ginger beer, lime, and bitters. With a taste similar to a Moscow Mule, this cocktail offers a strong, whiskey twist on a traditional classic. Don’t knock the lime and whiskey until you try it — trust us, it’s an unlikely pair that works!


  • 2 oz. whiskey
  • 4 oz. ginger beer
  • 4 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Lemon or lime wedge
  • Ice


  1. Fill a highball glass (or mason jar) with ice.
  2. Add whiskey, ginger beer, bitters, and a squeeze of lime or lemon, and stir to combine.
  3. Serve immediately, garnished with extra lemon or lime.
