Irish Whiskey Sour

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!! I really wanted to share a great recipe with you today. But I really cannot beat my “Thank Heaven for Mrs. Mullen” best Irish Soda Bread recipe. Click HERE for the post. But today, I was speaking to my friend Kelley, one of my besties from High School (I’ve talked a lot about her over the blogging years!!!), as she was getting dinner together she was going to make herself an Irish Whiskey Sour. I asked her about it and thought that was the perfect thing to share with you today.

To all my lovely lovely readers:

May the Wisdom of God instruct us. May the Hand of God protect us. May the Way of God direct us. May the Shield of God defend us.

Now back to Kelley’s recipe!!!!

Irish Whiskey Sour or Irish Sour

(adapted from a couple of cooks)

  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) Jameson Irish whiskey (or use 2 1/2 ounces for a stronger flavor). My friend Kelley recommends using less so it’s not so strong.
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 ounce (1 1/2 tablespoons) simple syrup 
  • Use a Lemon wedge, cocktail cherry (my favorite!!!) for garnish
  • Ice, for serving
  • Shake ingredients without ice. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker except the ice. Shake 15 seconds.
  • Add ice and shake! Add the ice and shake 30 seconds. The foam will rise to the top!

PS I just love THIS cocktail shaker!!!! And this drink looks so good with a large ice sphere.
