Eye Opener

Irish Whiskey , Modern Classics

For this cocktail, Jameson brand ambassador Killian Lee uses Jameson Caskmates, which is regular Jameson that has been finished in beer casks. The "eye-opening" part of this cocktail comes from the addition of cold-brew coffee. This is tempered by ginger–brown-sugar syrup and finished off with a bit of stout.

High King Highball

Irish Whiskey , Modern Classics

At East Village cocktail destination Pouring Ribbons, cocktails get “rated” on a scale of “refreshing” to “spirituous,” “comforting” to “adventurous,” to help guide you to the right drink. (Chartreuse lovers, ask for the bar’s vintage Chartreuse selection). On the refreshing side, the High King Highball was created by bar-star Joaquín Simón and features Clontarf Irish whiskey and Aperol, along with muddled raspberries, lemon and grapefruit juices, simple syrup, Peychaud's bitters and a splash of soda. The artful creation is then garnished with a skewered lemon wheel and raspberry.
