This drink is lucky; it’s also simple, fresh, and delicious. Plus, it may save you from getting pinched on Saint Patrick’s Day.
Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up, and you know what that means. All things Irish; all things green. We are not those people you find relieving themselves in the far depths of an alleyway after having one too many green beers, but we do love any reason to stir up a tasty cocktail.
Typically made with ginger beer; this cocktail is a Blarney Stone of sorts, but we used a ginger simple syrup and club soda. The ginger simple syrup gives lovely hints of warmth, spice, and a gentle sweetness. The fresh lime juice is a nice balance, and the whiskey is oh-so-smooth.
We set the recipe to 1 drink, but the simple syrup yields 1/2 cup. Tip: if you have some syrup left after the cocktails are just a memory, it’s great with fresh fruit.
