Smooth and rich, this simple cocktail made with Irish whiskey, sweet vermouth, and orange bitters will appeal to anyone who drinks a Manhattan. An orange twist emphasizes the warm citrus aroma.
Buena Vista Fizz
This cool spin on an Irish coffee from Tradition in San Francisco is one of our favorite new whiskey drinks, bringing together a blast of coffee with Irish whiskey and earthy chicory-infused rye, plus a touch of citrus to brighten the mix.
This whiskey lemonade is sweetened with honey and made long with seltzer: it's an ideal porch sipper (if you're working on your copywriting on the porch). It's super refreshing, not too boozy, and not too sweet.
EVR's Whiskey Sour
Leathery whiskeys come together in this Scotch-and-Irish cocktail from EVR in New York City. It’s a hefty, almost chewy cocktail, with a nice malty core, and a bit of richness thanks to a little Pimm's and agave syrup.
Tall, refreshing, and easy, this combination of Irish whiskey, ginger beer, and lime can be adjusted depending on the sweetness of your ginger beer. You could also try this with a combination of citrus if you have lemons or grapefruits on hand.
Malty yet feminine, with citrusy aromatics, this silky drink from cocktail historian David Wondrich is made with Irish whiskey, Lillet Blanc, Cointreau, and orange bitters.
