An Irishman and a Southern belle walk into a bar. Wish we had more to the joke, but all we’ve got is a delicious Irish twist on a Southern classic – whiskey replaces bourbon in this minty fresh Julep.


4 mint leaves
1tsp sugar
2 tsp water
1½oz Irish whiskey
¼oz Crème de Menthe

Mint sprigs, for garnish


1. In a tall glass, muddle the mint leaves with the sugar and water. Fill the glass with ice and pour whiskey and crème de menthe over the ice. Garnish with mint sprigs

Serves 1

Bite Me Bit: “If you’re lucky enough to be Irish, then you’re lucky enough.” -Traditional Irish saying

With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, what better way to find the Pot of Gold than with this fun and easy Celtic celebration?




Whether it’s cruising the aisles at the Dollar Store or experimenting at the stove, we believe that every day can be a holiday.
