The Emerald Cocktail
I'm a big fan of the Manhattan and this drink, The Emerald is an Irish version of the Manhattan made with Irish Whiskey. I had never heard of this drink until a few weeks ago when I was searching for a good St. Patrick's Day cocktail. I was actually surprised that this hadn't already made the rounds on the internet considering emerald is the Pantone color of the year. Of course, the drink isn't actually emerald itself.
I wish you all a fun and festive weekend. Whatever your drink of choice, Sláinte!
2 ounces Irish Whiskey
1 ounce Sweet Vermouth
1 dash orange bitters
twist of orange peel to garnish
Pour ingredients into a cocktail shaker with a scoop of crushed ice and stir. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and serve with the twist of orange. Makes one cocktail.
