"A good all-around beverage (parties, lounging, whatever). I prefer Maker's Mark Whiskey for this, but if that's not your taste, I also recommend Crown Royal." — LOCKHEEDC5

chilled ginger ale
Very sharp tasting drink. It's got an edge. Not sure it's one of my favorites, but it's not as sweet as some of the others I've tried. I think it might be just a little better with a little lime squeezed in, just for a little tartness.
I used Crown Royal, good not great.
This is basically a rye and ginger with grenadine. In this Canadian's mind, this is no more creative than suggesting that coke and rum would make a good cocktail.
I doubled the recipe because I had just enough whiskey left in a bottle. I also served the drink as mixed shots to my roommates. At first they said it tasted slightly like cough syrup, the mixture of alcohol and grenadine, but then I squeezed in half a lime and it completely changed the taste. Delicious!
This spicy gin-based cocktail stars fresh ginger root and hot chile pepper!
