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.
