Proper MurLarkey

There aren't many great Irish whiskey sipping cocktails. Most of the St. Patrick's Day-themed cocktails are sugary and heavy on cream and artificial green colors. This cocktail may be slightly orange, but the flavor is undeniably Irish.

MurLarkey Honey whiskey is a rare bottling. The master distiller soaks naturally harvested honeycomb in a barrel of their white whiskey. It isn't sweet, but it has a honey essence. Irish whiskey like Proper Twelve has a honey scent on the nose as well. The rest of the drink brings bitter citrus and spice to make this a well-rounded and rich cocktail.
  • 1 1/2 oz. Proper Twelve Irish whiskey
  • 1 oz. MurLarkey honey whiskey
  • 1/ 2oz. Royal Combier
  • 1 dash orange bitters
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled Old Fashioned glass full of ice.
