Saint Patrick’s day deserves a wee drop of the creature! My choice for this year’s celebration, a Tipperary Cocktail.
I have posted how to make a Manhattan Cocktail before but I decided to do a video on how to make one!
The Old Fat Guy
I really like an Old Fashioned and made one in a previous post. You’ll note in my prior post that I used a good Canadian rye whisky. However, they always seem to use bourbon when I order one in a bar, even here in Canada. Don’t get me wrong, a nice bourbon Old Fashioned is very tasty. I just prefer Canadian rye. I think it has a smoother richer taste.
We were continuing our experimenting with cocktails and my buddy, Bill, found a recipe for a drink called a Rookie Cocktail. It is from a blogger at http://rookielibations.blogspot.ca. It is a site well worth checking out. It was Bill’s turn to pick what we tried and this is what he chose.
The sampling of cocktails continues with Lynchburg Lemonade as it was hot and we needed something refreshing.
We were starting to sober up so, obviously, it was time to try another classic cocktail. Today’s tipple is a Sazerac.
In an alcoholic haze we continue our trials of classic cocktails. As it is really hot here, we went for Mint Juleps.
