Friday Night Cocktail

The James Joyce Cocktail*

Tomorrow is St Patrick’s Day and I have just enough Irish heritage to want to mark it somehow.  This seemed appropriate.

It’s a variation of the Oriental Cocktail using Irish whiskey instead of rye and not having had the rye version, I like this one. It’s a sweet manhattan with added extras. Yum.


1.5oz Irish whiskey

0.75oz sweet vermouth

0.75oz triple sec

0.5oz lime juice


Shake all the ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

*all of March’s Friday Night Cocktails come from The Cocktailian Chronicles by Gaz Regan, you should go and buy this book, it’s great.
