The Emerald Old Fashioned is a fascinating riff on a traditional Old Fashioned. A smooth, sweeter style of Irish whiskey accompanies a touch of herbaceous Green Chartreuse and anise-flavours from Absinthe (the original recipe calls for Genepy, a French liqueur). Surprisingly smooth considering the compilation of liqueurs.
The Derby cocktail dates back to 1947 and the original calls for a bourbon whiskey. The Irish Derby substitutes the bourbon for a slightly sweeter style of Irish whiskey. The end result is a tart, citrusy Derby.
The Irish Maid is a riff on the Southern classic created by Milk and Honey’s Sam Ross, the Kentucky Maid. The Kentucky Maid calls for a bourbon whiskey whilst the Irish Maid calls for Irish whiskey.
