Irish Whiskey Cocktail: Tipperary

 

Tipperary Cocktail Recipe - Irish Whiskey Cocktail

The thing about a Tipperary Cocktail is… it’s really damn good. Named after a town in southern Ireland this Irish Whiskey cocktail instantly became one of my favorites. The green Chartreuse gives the cocktail a wonderful herby black licorice flavor that coats the mouth like a warm blanket while the vermouth pulls in some sweetness that’s a welcome guest at this party. Finally the Irish Whiskey glides effortlessly into the room, says top o’ the mornin’ to everyone (no matter what time of day it is) and then moves on down to the belly leaving a warm feeling of Irish hospitality the entire way down.

This is a delightful cocktail that will make you wish you had 2 tongues and 4 livers. It’s complex yet completely comforting and if the Chartreuse wasn’t so damn expensive I’d probably be having one every night. Though of course I can never leave well enough alone so I tweaked the original recipe and made a version that I think is even better. Both recipes are below and if you decide to make one yourself let me know how it turns out in the comments below.
