Bourbon Press

Also known as a Bourbon Press.

The Presbyterian is one of those classic cocktails that is subject to interpretation because, despite its simple list of three ingredients, there are many variations.

Some recipes will use ginger ale while others substitute it for 7-Up or another lemon-lime soda. On the base Liqueur side, one thing is for sure, whiskey is necessary, but whether that be Bourbon, Rye, or a good-old Blended whiskey is a matter of personal taste.
