The Nairobi

Author Notes:

This is a mojito-like variation on my Kenyan-Indian friends' favorite cocktail, Jameson and Ginger Ale. I threw this together when I had some leftover minced basil, mint, and cilantro on the cutting board. Just add lime and voila.


Serves: 1


  • 2 shots Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • 1 cup Ginger Ale or Diet Ginger Ale
  • 2 slices of fresh lime
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced cilantro, basil, and mint
  • ice
