Whiskey Cocktail of the Month: The Irish Legend

Whiskey

Love a good whiskey cocktail? We’ve got a winner this September!

The classic whiskey sour is known to contatin whiskey (often bourbon), lemon juice, sugar, and optionally, a dash of egg white. It is shaken and served either straight up or over ice. The traditional garnish is half an orange slice and a maraschino cherry.

The oldest historical mention of a whiskey sour was published in the Wisconsin newspaper, Waukesha Plain Dealer, in 1870.

The Irish Legend is a unique take on the classic whiskey sour, and a drink born from the character of Tullamore D.E.W. and the creative nature of Daniel E. Williams. Perfect to put a ‘spring’ in your step this September, enjoy a drink of great complexity and balance.

With ingredients like rosemary, apple, lemon, lime and blackberry, this is a cocktail of mythical depth. The final result is multilayered and flavourful, yet rich in character and smoothness.

Ingredients:

  • 45 ml Tullamore DEW Original Irish Whiskey
  • 15 ml Amaretto
  • 40 ml apple juice
  • 10 ml lemon juice
  • 10 ml lime juice
  • 5 ml sugar syrup
  • 1 spring rosemary
  • 1 egg white
  • 10 ml crème de mure
