Today is the birthday of John Jameson, the legendary man behind the world-recognized Irish Whiskey of the same name.
By now, most of us are familiar with a variety of creative shots for toasting with Jameson – there’s the Pickleback, Car Bomb, Grand Slam, or the whiskey can be simply chilled on its own.
So what better way to celebrate Mr. Jameson himself than with a creative new shot using Jameson’s beloved whiskey – perhaps something sweet to go with some birthday cheer! Here’s a sweet drink to serve as a shooter:
- 1 part Jameson Irish Whiskey
- 1 1/2 parts Hiram Walker Peach Schnapps
- 5 parts cranberry juice.
Pour into shot glasses and serve each with a lime wedge. (Serves 2-3, depending on size of shot glass)
In further celebration, a new national TV campaign launches today that tells another tale in the series of legendary stories of John Jameson. Titled “The Hawk of Achill” – and inspired by the Celtic myth of the same name – you can discover more of Achill and John Jameson by clicking here. Also, below is the TV spot that you’ll find airing today:
