Luck Of The Irish Cocktail

While Guinness and Whiskey are no doubt popular beverage choices for St. Patrick’s Day, I think this Luck of the Irish cocktail will make a grand signature drink for your Patty’s Day party!

Jameson Irish Whiskey is combined with peach schnapps, pineapple juice, and a drop of food coloring to give the drink its green hue. Serve the drink over ice with mint leaves and a cherry for garnish.

Jameson is produced from a blend of grain whiskey and single pot still whiskey, which uses a mixture of malted and unmalted or “green” Irish barley, all sourced from within a fifty-mile radius around the distillery in Cork. The barley is dried in a closed kiln fired by natural gas (formerly anthracite coal). This is in contrast to the traditional method used in some Scotch whisky distilleries, which fire the kiln with peat, adding a distinctive peat flavour.


How To Mix Cocktails

There are several ways you can mix St. Patrick’s Day cocktails – you can shake them, stir them, or blend them. This Irish cocktail is shaken!

Don’t worry if you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you could just use a container with a tight-fitting lid – like a mason jar, water bottle, or even the cup on a blender or smoothie maker.
