Mrs. Doyle (Death & Co. Recipe)


This quaint and familiar Sour cocktail with the unusual flavors of Swedish Punsch is named after an Irish actress in the sitcom, Father Ted. I'm not sure if the reference is correct, because it is obscure, but the coincidence is too strong to doubt. This is an Irish whiskey cocktail after all, and a good one. 

While Kronan is a present-day Swedish punsh available in some places in the US, it is possible to make it at home, which I did, with MurLarkey Lemon and Three Tea whiskey mixed with Jamaican rum and infused with lemon and cardamon. 

The addition of Swedish punsch adds a funky tropical flavor to the Sour cocktail: lots of lemon notes with cardamon, black tea (floral and smoky in this case because of the tea whiskey and IPA edition Jameson) and brown sugar sweetness. This was an easy cocktail to make, and an impressive one to serve on St. Patrick's Day.

  • 2 oz. Redbreast 12-year Irish Whiskey (Jameson IPA edition used)
  • 1/4 oz. Kronan Swedish Punsch (homemade used)
  • 3/4 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup 

Combine all ingredients in a a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled coupe glass.
