Serpent's Tooth

At the heart of this wily cocktail is Irish whiskey, placing this drink among the rank of the Tipperary and Everybody's Irish which use green Chartreuse and lots of flavorful spirits. As written, the recipe calls for 1 1/2 oz. of lemon juice, making it extremely acidic and difficult to drink. With a half ounce of simple syrup added, it becomes extremely amenable and boozy. You notice sweet vermouth, Angostura bitters and Jagermeister. I'll include the sugar in the recipe so that no one feels the bite of the Serpent.
  • 2 oz. Irish whiskey
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. Jagermeister
  • 1 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • 3-5 dashes Angostura bitters
  • lemon twist
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into an Old Fashioned glass full of fresh ice. Garnish with twist.
