My education has come from less traditionally academic mixologist realms. In other words... thank god for the Internet.
I discovered the cocktail for this blog post at Cocktails With M. I visit from time to time. It's called Tipperary and its name lays claim, from what I can tell, to Irish sensibilities by its Irish whiskey ingredient (it's other ingredients are French and Italian). Its name, Tipperary, is a town in Ireland which became the topic of a popular WWI marching song.
I love whiskey and have become a recent Chartreuse enthusiast, so I decided to give it a go.
- 2 oz of Jameson Irish whiskey
- 3/4 oz of sweet vermouth
- 1/2 oz of green Chartreuse
- a lemon
Glassware: cocktail glass
