Recipe: Shamrocked

St. Patrick’s Day is just a week and change away. That means spirits merchants inundate us with holiday-appropriate recipes — I’ve been surprised by the number of tequila-based cocktail ideas this year — but this was the one I was most anxious to try, courtesy of the folks at Tullamore Dew. (Irish whiskey, of course, should always get preference on the 17th.)

Here’s the concoction:

2 oz. Midori melon liqueur
1/2 oz. Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey
1/2 oz. Carolans Irish cream liqueur

Shake incredibly well, serve in 3 oz. shot glass

It sounds awful but it’s surprisingly good, an easy-drinking, creamy, and predominantly minty (yes, minty) cocktail. I’m always skeptical of Midori-based drinks, but this one’s not at all bad. And if nothing else, at least it looks the part!

Give it a whirl.
