Actor, comedian and host Joel McHale can now add mixologist to his resume. He's the Chief Happy Hour Officer for Q Mixers, which sounds like a fun job! Here, he shares the brand's "apple snap" cocktail, made with rye whiskey, apple cider and ginger beer. Rach calls it "fabulous!" 

Pro Tip: You can also pour in the Grand Marnier last to create a layered effect. 

For more cocktails that use ginger beer, check out John Cusimano's Chinatown Cosmo and Night Market Mule


  • 1 ounce rye whiskey
  • ¼ ounce Grand Marnier
  • 3 ounces fresh apple cider
  • ½ ounce lemon juice
  • 5 ounces ginger beer (Joel likes Q Mixers)
  • 1 apple slice
  • 1 cinnamon stick


Serves: 1


Fill a Collins glass with ice. Pour in the spirits, add the apple cider and lemon juice, then pour in the ginger beer and gently stir. Garnish with the apple slice and cinnamon stick.

Always drink responsibly.
