Three simple ingredients combine to make this Irish inspired cocktail:
A high-end Irish whiskey will shine in this recipe. Use your favorite or search around for a good brand.
We consider ourselves ginger beer connoisseurs and we think ginger beer should have a strong ginger flavor without too much sugar. Some brands just taste too sweet! We love making our own homemade ginger beer.
