Horse’s Neck


Horse’s Neck

A Horse’s Neck is an American cocktail recognised by the IBA, identifiably sporting a long, curling strip of lemon rind.

Dating back to the 1890s, it was a non-alcoholic mixture of ginger ale, ice and lemon peel. By the 1910s, brandy, or bourbon would be added for a “Horse’s Neck with a Kick” or a “Stiff Horse’s Neck”. The non-alcoholic version was still served in upstate New York in the late 1950s and early 60s, but eventually it was phased out.
