If you're at all in to cocktails do yourself a favor and mix one of these for the blessed Saint's Day.
Cameronís Kick Cocktail
1 oz Scotch Whisky (Dewar's 12)
1 oz Irish Whiskey (Erin Go Bragh 6)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Orgeat Syrup
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass. (Squeeze orange peel on top.)
My girlfriend and I have been trying out different Irish whiskey cocktails for several years and this is by far my favorite. Plus, given the fact that I am currently working on a play about Mary, Queen of Scots, it fits that bill as well. Two great Celts come together in one fine drink. Go easy on the orgeat and use any middling Scotch and Irish.
Happy St. Paddy's day
