Kerry Cooler

Yes. That is James Joyce stepping out in front of that bottle sherry. This is my last Irish whiskey post for the Irish cocktail project. It makes a solid 20 (a guinea of drinks) and a sound finish to this adventure. I'm sure Joyce would approve. This last one took two tries, because I ran out of orgeat syrup. Now rectified, I think this is a respectable drink, and about as strong as I would hope for as a finale. Here's the recipe:
  • 2 oz. Irish whiskey
  • 1 oz. medium sherry
  • 1 oz. orgeat syrup
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • club soda
  • lemon peel
Combine all ingredients except club soda in a shaker full of ice. Shake and pour into a highball glass. Top with soda and garnish with a lemon peel.
