5 Irish whiskey cocktails to help you celebrate the Six Nations
Do we need a better excuse than that? Nah
We need to make the most out of the fact that we can’t go and watch the rugby at the pub. Sure, a pint of beer in a room full of people is great (and boy do I miss being able to go to the pub), but it’s time to adapt. So why not take your Six Nations rugby viewing to a new level and whip up some Irish whiskey cocktails? It sounds like the perfect excuse to me.
Here are five simply scrum-my recipes that will get you over the try line and make sure you’re not blindsided... (sorry)
Classic Whiskey Sour
Ronan Collins, senior brand ambassador at Jameson & Powers Whiskey says, "There’s a reason the whiskey sour is one of the most famous after-dinner cocktails, and with the addition of Jameson Black Barrel, you get the added bonus of enhanced spiciness, vanilla sweetness and sherry fruit, in what is already a very tasty cocktail – the perfect tipple to celebrate a big win!"
Jameson, ginger and lime aka a JGL
Ronan says, "This cocktail is oh so refreshing, and couldn’t be easier to make, making it the ideal drink to mix up during half-time. A simple whiskey drink, it’s a thirst quencher that makes a pleasing accompaniment to a game of rugby.”
Caramel Cold Brew
A twist on the insanely popular Espresso Martini. The spice of the whiskey shines through the bitterness of the stout and sweetness of the salted caramel.
Powers Honey Highball
Ronan says, “The perfect pre-match cocktail with just the right sweetness to get you hyped for a game of rugby, this is definitely a great one to start off with.”
Totally Tropical Teeling
A super refreshing cocktail that uses pineapple syrup to accentuate the sweeter notes in Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey.
