History of the
Horse’s Neck cocktail

Dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s, a Horse’s Neck was originally a non-alcoholic mixture of ginger ale, ice, and a lemon peel. By the 1910s, brandy or whisky was added for a “horse’s neck with a kick”. The drink was a supposed favorite of American President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and became popular in the wardrooms of the British Royal Navy in the 1960s. The cocktail is named for the long, thin lemon peel which resembles a horse’s neck. It is a simple and refreshing cocktail that is easy to make, perfect for any occasion and can be enjoyed by everyone.
