Since coming back from Ireland I cannot stop drinking Irish Whiskey. So, of course I’m putting it into drinks not normally associated with it, such as this: my take on a traditional Mai Tai.
1.75 oz Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey
0.5 oz Plantation Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple Rum
0.5 oz Demerara Syrup (1:1)
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
0.75 oz Fresh Pineapple Juice
0.25 oz The Bitter Truth Golden Falernum
Prepare a bunch of crushed ice beforehand by using either a Lewis bag or muddling ice in a shaker tin. Then add everything to a new shaker filled with ice and give a good 15-20 second shake. Fine strain into either a stemless wine glass or double old fashioned glass full over the brim with the crushed ice. Grab a nice big bunch of mint, slap that baby (make it free!) to release the aroma and oils, then stick it right in the glass.
