Happy Hour: Lucky Stiff Cocktail

Does anyone else remember the magazine Budget Living? Sadly it's now defunct, but I always looked forward to each new issue. This weekend I found a stash of old magazines, including a copy of Budget Living's October 2005 issue. Naturally, I had to stop what I was doing and look through all the pages. I became absorbed with the issue and was surprised when I came across a really great looking drink recipe. Surprised because I'm sure I must have read it before, and yet it seemed totally new to me.

hey smartypants, i was just about to write really great point, but then I re-read it. You just need to top off each drink with ginger ale.

Sounds great, but how do you put gingerale in a shaker without it fizzing all over the place?
