St. Patty’s Tipples

Ah, St. Patty’s Day is upon us again. It seems just yesterday, I was sharing my faux-Irish background with you all and now here we are one year later, about to experience (again) what is arguably the greatest drinking holiday of them all. I’m actually on vacation right now (this post was written ahead of time) but if I were in the area you can bet I’d be taking a ride up to Boston to partake in a little St. Patty’s Day tippling. Is there a greater city in this country for such an event? I think not! Wherever you may be headed to pretend to be Irish this holiday, take down these recipes and demand them at once! Or you could just ask nicely, I suppose. Here are some newbies from Pernod & Beefeater 24.

Irish Sour:

1 ½ oz. Beefeater 24 Gin

2/3 oz. Suze

2/3 oz. Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

½ oz. Yellow Chartreuse

2 barspoons Monin Green Tea Syrup

1 whole fresh egg white

Shake ingredients over ice and strain into an ice-filled glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Irish Tea Party:

4 parts Sweetened Green Tea (chilled)

1 part Jameson Irish Whiskey

½ part Pernod Absinthe

Rinse rocks glass with Pernod Absinthe. Add ice. Pour Jameson over the ice. Add Green tea and garnish with a lime slice.

Enjoy!
