I’m sure quite a few of you (I won’t name any names) are still nursing hangovers from celebrating St. Patrick’s Day over the weekend, so I’d like to issue a friendly reminder that St. Patrick’s Day is actually this Tuesday (March 17). And with a little experimentation and a bottle of Teeling Irish Whiskey, I’ve created a St. Patrick’s Day cocktail that surely isn’t for the faint of heart. I’ve added a spicy kick to the classic Whiskey Sour cocktail thanks to the addition of fresh jalapeno, and created what I’ve dubbed “The Spicy Shamrock.”
Check out “The Spicy Shamrock” recipe below, and cheers to a Lushworthy, St. Patrick’s Day!
1.5 oz Teeling Irish Whiskey
1.5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
2 oz Water
1.5 tsp Sugar
2 Jalapeno Slices
Add Teeling Irish Whiskey to a shaker with no ice. Add one jalapeno slice and muddle. Add fresh lemon juice, water, sugar, and ice. Shake contents. Double strain into a rocks glass filled with ice, using both the shaker strainer and a mesh strainer to capture any seeds from the jalapeno. Garnish with jalapeno slice and maraschino cherry.
