I’m not sure why this cocktail got named the Grumpy Old Man. It doesn’t seem fair, since it’s absolutely charming and that’s one thing grumpy old men are not. Maybe it’s the cure for being a Grumpy Old Man? That could be.
The Grumpy Old Man adds a healthy portion of bourbon to a glass of ginger ale and lime juice. It tastes wonderful, especially with a spicier ginger ale such as Vernor’s.
Grumpy Old Man
- 2 ounces bourbon

Put ice into an. Add the bourbon and lime juice, and then top it off the rest of the way with ginger ale. Serve with a straw.
