When you want to put an Irish spin on any cocktail, it usually means adding in Irish Whiskey, and this Tipperary Cocktail did just that. Named after County Tipperary, this twist on the Bijou cocktail nixed gin in favor of Jameson and we couldn’t love it more!

The herbaceous and bubbly flavors of this Mint Gin Spritz cocktail are sure to tickle your taste buds.

Bubbly Mint Gin Spritz Cocktail

Gin Spritzers are perfect Spring cocktails!

Simple, sophisticated, and seriously refreshing: This herbaceous and effervescent Mint Gin Spritz cocktail is sure to tickle your taste buds.

With the hints of cucumber, mint, and lemon, you just can't go wrong with this Mint Gin Spritz cocktail.

Imagine a cocktail that embodies the cucumber essence of Hendrick’s Gin, the fresh sweetness of mint, the citrus kick of lemon juice, and the effervescence of Prosecco. Now, let me tell you that cocktail exists! Cue in the Mint Gin Spritz.

It’s simple, sophisticated, and seriously refreshing. That’s the beauty of this Mint Gin Spritz cocktail. In just a few minutes you’ll be sipping on a bright, herbaceous spritz cocktail that is perfect for Spring.

Bubbly cocktails can be fun additions to any cocktail party, and this Mint Gin Spritz has the makings of a real party pleaser. It’s herby, a little bit sweet, and has everything you want in a gin cocktail.

Spritz cocktails are incredibly refreshing and their effervescent nature makes them fun to drink. In this Spritz, we opted to use Prosecco, an Italian sparkling wine, instead of sparkling water or club soda. Prosecco has a fruit palate that pairs well with the herbal notes of gin.

Mint has such a clean and fresh taste. That’s why it makes a great complementary flavor in cocktails. The hints of cucumber in Hendrick’s Gin mixed with muddled mint gives the Mint Gin Spritz cocktail a cool and clean mouthfeel.

The Mint Gin Spritz is a great addition to our list of Spring cocktails, and would make an excellent whiskey alternative for a Saint Patrick’s day cocktail. Happy Sipping!

This herbaceous and refreshing Basil Gin Smash cocktail will have you rethinking a basic Gin and Tonic.

Refreshing Basil Gin Smash Cocktail

You’ll be green with Envy over this cocktail

This herbaceous and refreshing Basil Gin Smash cocktail will have you rethinking a basic Gin and Tonic.

This herbaceous and refreshing Basil Gin Smash cocktail will have you rethinking a basic Gin and Tonic.

Fun fact for the day: I can speak German. Well, as much German as you can learn in a few semesters in University. Which came in handy for mixing up this Basil Gin Smash cocktail.

The Basil Gin Smash cocktail was first created by Jörg Meyer in his bar called The Lion in Hamburg, Germany back in 2008. As you can imagine, many of its online recipes are in German.

That’s where my awesome translating-ninja-skills came into play to translate this German recipe for our mostly American audience. You’re so welcome!

I find it fitting that we begin the month of March with such a green cocktail. It would make a delicious alternative so some of our other Saint Patrick’s day themed cocktails from the previous year. Especially, since it’s a gin cocktail and not an Irish whiskey cocktail.

This cocktail recipe is made using Hendrick’s Gin, lemon juice, fresh basil, and sugar syrup [a.k.a simple syrup which we have a fantastic recipe for]. If you want to use the gin Jörg recommends for this cocktail, you’ll want to find yourself a bottle of Rutte Dry Gin.

There is a mild bit of contention over crafting the Basil Gin Smash, as its creator wants you to muddle basil for this cocktail. Apparently, that is not well received by everyone. Over muddling can make the cocktail very herby, and it might be my German ancestors working through me, but I rather like that.

The cucumber essence of Hendrick’s Gin and the freshness of the lemon juice and basil create a great balance in this cocktail, which is key. You might need to adjust it to find the right balance for your tastes.

This Basil Gin Smash cocktail is a simple, but elegant cocktail that I plan on making more of in the future. Cheers!

This is how you make a Basil Gin Smash!

Basil Gin Smash

Yields: 1 Serving
Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 2 Ounces Hendrick’s Gin
  • 1 Ounce Fresh Lemon Juice
  • ⅔ Ounce Simple Syrup
  • 15 to 20 Fresh Basil Leaves
  • Fresh Basil for Garnish
Glassware and Items You’ll Need:

  • Coupe or Rocks Glass
  • Cocktail or Boston Shaker
  • Muddler or Bar Spoon

 

Preparation

Basil Gin Smash: In the bottom of your shaker, dry muddle a handful of basil leaves. Next, add in gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and ice. Shake vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds. Double strain cocktail into a coupe [for nicer presentation] or a rocks glass. Garnish cocktail with fresh basil leaves. Enjoy!

Super Tasty Irish Coffee to get you through Winter

Super Tasty Irish Coffee

Warm Cocktails for the Winter Win

It’s cold outside. Let’s get cozy and we’ll show you how to whip up this super tasty Irish Coffee!

Super Tasty Irish Coffee to get you through Winter

As soon as Christmas lights go up, we whip out the hot cocktails. From toddies to coffee cocktails, winter opens up a new world of warm and sometimes chocolatey cocktails, and this Irish Coffee recipe is one of my absolute favorites.

The Irish coffees I’ve had in the past have always been made with either dark or medium roast coffee. Sometimes, I think the dark roast is better offset by sweet whipped cream than the medium roast. So for this recipe, I’ll give you the option to try it with either dark or medium roast. I typically like my coffee high test, but I experimented using a dark chocolate infused coffee and it was phenomenal.

Floating heavy cream on Irish coffee can take some practice to make it “picture perfect.” So don’t fret if it doesn’t look like the pictures do. If the heavy cream is whipped properly it will float. It took me a few tries to get it right and for it to not just fall in like a creamer. To do it, gently spoon on the whipping cream, making sure to get it about an inch thick. You can do it, I believe in you.

Now let’s show you how you make this super tasty Irish Coffee recipe!

Irish Coffee

Yields: 1 Serving

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 4 Ounces Fresh Coffee [Either Medium or Dark Roast]
  • 1¾ Ounces Irish Whiskey
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • Heavy Cream, Lightly Whipped
  • Chocolate Powder for Garnish
  • Cinnamon Stick for Garnish

Glassware and Items You’ll Need:

  • Irish Coffee Glass
  • Spoon

Preparation

Irish Coffee: Pour piping hot [medium or dark roast] coffee into an Irish Coffee glass until it is about ¾ of the way full. Sprinkle in 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and stir until completely dissolved. Add in the whiskey, and float the lightly whipped heavy cream to top it off. Garnish with chocolate powder and cinnamon stick if desired. Enjoy!

Drink of the week: Baileys Iced Chai

Baileys Iced Chai

This Ain’t Your Starbucks’ Iced Chai Tea

Skip the milk! Use Baileys® Original Irish Cream Liqueur in your iced Chai for a drink of the week experience like no other, with this Baileys Iced Chai Cocktail.

Drink of the week: Baileys Iced Chai

Masala chai is a mixed-spiced tea that originated from India. This tea is made from strong black tea leaves that are infused with traditional Indian herbs and spices, like green cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks, ground cloves, ground ginger, and black peppercorn. These spices give chai its warming feeling, which might sound odd since it is drunk throughout the year. Despite its spiciness, Masala Chai makes a great iced summer drink and makes for one great iced tea cocktail when doctored up a bit.

Chai is one of the most popular teas worldwide, and people have an absolute love affair with it. The Decimal Brothers made a hilarious video called When you drop your Chai… to illuminate the deep sorrow of spilling a cup of chai. The struggle is real my friends. There is also something really satisfying about watching the milk seep into the tea.

Drink of the week: Baileys Iced Chai

Image from Giphy // Mesmerizing isn’t it?

Chai can be made from tea bags, chai concentrates, or even powdered chai. In many places around the globe, this milky tea is brewed directly in milk instead of water. Typically, people use Condensed milk, white or brown sugar, honey, or syrups to add a bit of sweetness when they make chai, so we opted to use our recipe for simple syrup. The level of sweetness is also subjective to the drinker, so add as much as you need to.

Cold or Iced Chai has grown in popularity here in the States. You can find hot or iced Chai lattes in pretty much every major Coffee House and Tea chain in America. Fun fact: The word “Chai” actually translates to “Tea”, so when you order a Chai Tea Latte you are literally saying to your barista, “I’d like a large Hot/Iced Tea Tea Latte, please.” Are you ready to brew up some delicious Baileys Iced Chai iced tea cocktails? Then let’s get started.

Be sure to check out all of our Iced Tea Cocktails throughout the month of June.

Drink of the Week: Whiskey Ginger-Honey Iced Tea

Whiskey Ginger-Honey Iced Tea

So long ginger ale, whiskey has a new best friend.

We are continuing to grow our collection of Boozy Iced Tea Drink of the Week cocktails for National Iced Tea Month. This week, we’re putting an iced tea spin on the classic Whiskey Ginger. Your obsession with whiskey and tea just got upgraded with this Whiskey Ginger-Honey Iced Tea.

Drink of the Week: Whiskey Ginger-Honey Iced Tea

About a month ago, someone had given me a bottle of Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey Whiskey to try out. I like Whiskey Gingers, so I decided to try it in place of my go-to bottle of Irish Whiskey. Needless to say, I did not care for the combination of the honey whiskey and ginger ale. It wasn’t that it tasted too sweet, I like sweet things to an extent, but it was the carbonation that got to me really.

Determined to find a way to drink it, I ventured into my tea cabinet. One night, I got the idea to add the Tennessee Honey into a hot toddy that I made with ginger tea. I thought it paired very well with the spicy essence of ginger in the tea.

Ginger tea is a natural digestive aid, and many folks drink ginger tea with honey and lemon as a weight loss supplement. There are many benefits to eating ginger root and drinking ginger tea, including relieving gas and heartburn. Something you might deal with a lot this summer after attending a few backyard cookouts or block parties. Ginger also is used in many cold remedies, as it helps to boost the immune system. Which is why it is one of my favorite teas to drink during allergy season.

Tea Steeping Giph

via Giphy

So I decided to try making a Whiskey Ginger again, but instead of ginger ale, I made it with freshly brewed ginger tea and lemon juice over ice. This combination was far more appetizing, and after a few tweaks to the recipe, the Whiskey Ginger-Honey Iced Tea Toddy was born! I did think about naming this the Whiskey Sweet, a play off the Whiskey Sour, but Nah.

This Iced Toddy is great for soothing sore throats after a late night of summer concerts and is a delicious little energy booster. As a drink of the week cocktail, this Whiskey Ginger-Honey Iced Tea is different that our other iced tea cocktails as it can be enjoyed both hot or iced. I plan to enjoy it iced this summer, and hopefully, you’ll raise your Drink of the Week glasses with me to National Iced Tea Month with a cold Whiskey Ginger-Honey Iced Tea. Cheers!

Be sure to check out all of our Iced Tea Cocktails throughout the month of June.
