Today’s recipe is another cocktail! When I sat down to think about what recipes I wanted to make this year, I thought I should round out my Christmas collection with a few more drinks since I have approximately 4 million holiday food recipes (you can see them all HERE).
In the past, for Christmas, I’ve shared my CRANBERRY LIME COCKTAIL, CRANBERRY MIMOSAS, MERRY CHERRY MULES, GROWN UP HOT CHOCOLATE, and VIXEN’S CRANBERRY VODKA COCKTAIL. Today, we have a new one to share. I told Andrew that I wanted a cocktail that used Jameson Whiskey (our personal fave) but didn’t taste “too strong or too much like whiskey”. Plus, I wanted one that didn’t contain berries for those of you with berry allergies. After a lot of trial and error, we made our Killarney Cocktail 🙂 .
If you love Irish whiskey, you’ll love it. If you don’t think you love Irish whiskey, I still think you’ll love it. We, of course, named it after one of our favorite Christmas songs (you can find it on my playlist HERE), and it always makes us think of that time…
…we took our four young kids to the Jameson factory in Ireland where we all learned how Irish whiskey is made. Ha!
A delicious cocktail that uses Irish whiskey and apple cider! It’s a festive addition to any holiday get together!
- 1½ shots Jameson Irish Whiskey
- 1 shot apple cider
- 1 shot butterscotch schnapps
- Splash of club soda
- Sliced apples to garnish
- Cinnamon stick to garnish
In your glass with ice already in it, add in your Jameson, cider, butterscotch schnapps and club soda. Stir together and then garnish with sliced apples and a cinnamon stick.
That’s it! Enjoy!
You can use any whiskey in this recipe, but our favorite is Jameson Irish Whiskey!
