    Mash the jam up, and mix it into the whiskey.

    Step 4

    Add a strong pinch (about 1/3 of a teaspoon) of cinnamon. Mix it in well. The drink should have a syrup-like texture.

    Fill the rest of the glass with Ginger Ale. Stir the drink a little bit, then serve with a straw. Whiskey Buck!
