Bourbon and Ginger Ale

Does anyone know if the classic bourbon and ginger with a slice of lime has a name? Someone suggested to me that it was called a "Screen Door", but I don't think I believe that. Any help would be great!

    A whiskey + ginger/soda highball (any drink that contains spirit + soda = a highball) is generally called a Presbyterian.

      I have never heard of a Presbyterian, but I like it!
