Irish Old Fashioned

I’m a whiskey girl. Most bartender’s I’ve come across have made their way to their own go-to brand of whiskey or bourbon. I found mine in the wonderful city of Dublin, Ireland. I was fortunate enough to tour the distillery and taste this perfection from the source. Jameson is not only my go-to whiskey, it’s my go-to liquor on most days. And any bourbon or whiskey-based cocktail is always made with Jameson in my house.

This twist on a traditional, classic cocktail is simply the best tasting drink. Call me biased. But if you enjoy this recipe even half as much as I do, then it’s a win in my book. Each ingredient is key to your enjoyment. Amarena cherries can be found at liquor stores and specialty grocers.

Please leave your thoughts and comments. I’d love to hear from you.

 

INGREDIENTS:

2 oz. Irish whiskey (Jameson is preferred because it’s the best)
2 sugar cubes
orange bitters
club soda
orange slice for garnish
Amarena cherries for garnish (maraschino cherries can be substituted if unavailable)

TO MIX:

Place sugar cubes in a rocks glass. Drizzle bitters over cubes (about 4-5 drops).

Add 1 cube of ice and muddle ingredients.

Fill glass with ice and add in whiskey. Stir to mix sugar and whiskey.

Top with a SPLASH of club soda, then garnish with orange and cherry.

Enjoy this Glazed Salmon entrée immediately after.
