Irish Cure, adapted from Food and Wine
This is way more sophisticated way than green beer to celebrate the luck of the Irish. Irish whiskey is combined with apple brandy, dark rum, honey and "ginger juice" That ginger juice is the secret killer ingredient here - it is very easy to make (put some ginger in a garlic press) and it takes this drink to a whole other place. This may be my new favorite cocktail - but fair warning - one is all you need!
1 and 1/3 ounces of Irish Whiskey
1/3 ounce dark rum
2 and 1/2 teaspoons apple brandy or calvados
1/3 ounce lemon juice
1/4 ounce simple syrup
1/2 ounce honey mixed with 1/2 ounce with warm water
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger juice (take fresh ginger, peel, put pieces in garlic press, push ginger through and collect juice from ginger)
Dash of Angostura bitters
thin apple slice for garnish
- Put all ingredients except apple slice in cocktail shaker filled with ice.
- Shake to combine.
- Pour into coupe glass, garnish with apple slice.
