A Honey Sour with a Hint of St. Patricks’ Day

With St. Patrick’s day just around the corner (sorry, Saturday bartenders), we thought we’d try our hand at something green – without going crazy with Midori. (No offense to the Midori fans out there, of course! Naturally this whiskey drink features Jameson, and the rest is a basic honey sour.

Shamrock Optional… but why not?

Sweet, tart, floral and boozy, this is the perfect cocktail for a springtime holiday celebrating the Irish! Topping it off with a homemade stencil and a green spritz made with Absinthe and food coloring makes for a festive finish that also adds a nice layer of aromatics to the drink as well.

Of course, the stencil is completely optional and you could simply spritz absinthe across the top to get the same aromatic effect – but where’s the fun in that?
