There is no better marriage between a spirit and a mixer than when bourbon ties the knot with ginger ale. A long, winding citrus peel garnishes this drink, akin to the neck of a horse hanging over the edge and this is what supposedly gives the Horses Neck its name.
When made with Maker's Mark bourbon a Horses Neck is commonly referred to as a Kentucky Gentleman.
