Maybe you don’t like green drinks but want to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The Irish Martini is the drink for you any day.
The original recipe called for swirling the whiskey around the glass then discarding it. I consider that a ghastly waste of good liquor and have adjusted the drink accordingly.
- 2 oz vodka
- 1/2 oz dry vermouth
- 1/2 oz Irish whiskey
- Lemon twist
- In a shaker filled with ice add the vodka, vermouth and whiskey
- Shake ’til well chilled
- Strain into a cocktail glass and twist the lemon over the drink
