Cocktail Hour: An Old Fashioned Redhead

Posted by Arctic Wolf on June 13, 2017

Today’s mixed drink shakes up the classic Old Fashioned Cocktail. My inspiration for the libation is Red Head Single Malt Irish Whiskey a new triple distilled Single Malt from Ireland’s Walsh Whiskey Distillery. The single malt spirit was aged in hand selected Oloroso Sherry butts which infused their rich fruity flavours (think raisins, figs and dates) into the rich nutty flavour (think barley grain) of Writer’s Tears Irish Whiskey.

My new libation uses Cran-Raspberry syrup to enhance the rich fruity sherry cask flavours of the Irish Tears Red Head Irish Whiskey (yumm).

Let me introduce An Old Fashioned Red Head:

An Old Fashioned Redhead

2 1/2 oz Writer’s Tears Red Head Irish Whisky
1/2  oz Cran-Raspberry Syrup (see recipe here)
1 Blackberry
2 Raspberries
2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Add Ice to a Rocks Glass
Add Cran-Raspberry Syrup and Angostura Bitters

Pour the Writer’s Tears Red Head Irish Whisky over the Ice
Stir and garnish with the remaining Berries

Enjoy Responsibly!
