In Scotland we've always felt great kinship with our fellow Celts, the Irish. So to honour St Patrick's Day here's a special shamrock cocktail using Napiers Best Bitters to help prepare your body for an evening out on the town.
3 measures (75 ml / 2.5 oz) Irish whisky
1/2 tablespoon (7 ml / 0.25 oz) green Chartreuse
1 teaspoon (5 ml) Napiers Best British Bitters
½ teaspoon simple syrup
Pour the whisky, Chartreuse and simple syrup onto ice in a cocktail mixing glass.
Stir well until well chilled.
Pour the bitters into a coupe glass.
Swirl to coat the inside of the glass but do not discard the bitters.
Strain the whisky mixture into the glass over the bitters.
Decorate with a lemon twist.
Have a craic-ing good time!
Remember to always drink responsibly, for the sake of your health and your fellow humans.
