I've been busy experimenting with different Irish drinks to serve on St. Patrick's Day. Here is one of the contenders. I thought it tasted great, but Mr.Surly didn't like it. He said he doesn't like Cointreau unless it's in a margarita.
That's okay, I'm working on other drinks for him to sample and for me to post.
2 oz Irish Whiskey (I used Jameson that had been aged 12 yrs)
¼ oz Cointreau
Dash Angorstura bitters
Stir together liquid ingredients in mixing glass with ice. Strain into chilled cocktail glass. Run lemon twist around the rim of the glass, twist, and drop in.
