2 oz. Bourbon or Brandy
3-4 oz. Ginger ale
1-2 dashes of Bitters
Lemon peel (use a channel knife or vegetable peeler and cut as long of a strip of peel from your lemon as possible before you start mixing)
Place one end of your peel in the bottom of a Collin's glass. While holding the other end add a couple cubes of ice. Now spiral your peel a little in the glass and add more ice to hold it in place, leave a portion of the peel hanging over the rim of the glass. (that's how the name came about)
Next add your bourbon, bitters and ginger ale, and give it a gentle stir with your bar spoon.
Huzzah! You now have a pretty enough drink to serve anytime.
