December 5, 2018

It’s our favorite time of year. It’s when we’re blessed with presents, trips home to see the family, a full 24 hours of A Christmas Story, and best of all—the annual KROQ Absolut Almost Acoustic Christmas! And nothing says happy holidays to our favorite people (you, naturally) than filling everyone with some of that sweet Christmas spirit.

At this year’s KROQ Absolut Almost Acoustic Christmas party, Absolut is rolling out a fine array of delicious libations to keep you warm and toasty while rocking out to the best bands in the entire world.

Let’s take a peek at what’s in store. We’re getting thirsty already...

Jameson & Ginger Ale

This what we call a killer Southern California take on the classic winter warm-up. Two great tastes that taste so good together. One of those tastes is Jameson whisky. We rest our case.

  • 1 Part Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • 3 Parts Ginger Ale
  • 1 Wedge of Lime
  • Method: Fill glass with ice. Pour 2 parts Jameson Irish Whiskey over ice. Top up with ginger ale. Stir briefly to mix. Take a large wedge of lime, give it a squeeze and drop it into the glass.
