“Everybody’s Irish” Cocktail

“Everybody’s Irish” Cocktail

3 Dashes Green Mint. (1/2 tsp. Brizard Creme de Menthe)
6 Dashes Green Chartreuse. (1 tsp. Green Chartreuse)
Irish Whiskey. (2 oz Red Breast Irish Whiskey)

(Stir well with ice, strain into a cocktail glass and…) Add a Green olive.

Created to mark, and now in great demand on, St. Patrick’s Day. The green olive suspended in the liquid, looks like a gibbous moon.

It isn’t quite as “green” as it should be. I don’t have green Creme de Menthe so just used the plain white.

However, all in all, a tasty (and quite potent) cocktail.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
