Fare Thee Well

Fare Thee Well is the name of an old Celtic love song with the title repeated at the end of each verse. In it the singer is going away, maybe never to return, and he wishes his "Honey" a goodbye.

This bittersweet song is a great name for a cocktail that's made best with Glendalough Wild Botanical Gin from Ireland. This gin is so bright and fresh that it's floral notes are the main sensation in this Martini variation of a cocktail.

The blue-ish color of the liqueur is a result of the botanicals releasing into the ice-melt from mixing, as this non-chil filtered gin will do.
  • 2 oz. gin (Glendalough used)
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • dash sweet vermouth
  • dash Cointreau
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
