What's this?

Bartender Rory Toolan’s recipe was inspired by the Slane Castle Music Festival. He let the triple-casked Irish whiskey be the star and added a few other simple ingredients to play up the floral notes of the spirit. The resulting cocktail is boozy and bright—perfect for a festival concert.


  • 2 oz Slane Irish whiskey
  • 3/4 oz Byrrh quinquina
  • 1/2 oz Suze
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • Garnish: Grapefruit peel


  1. Add all the ingredients to a mixing glass with ice and stir until cold.

  2. Strain into a chilled coupe.

  3. Express oil from a grapefruit peel. Place peel on the lip of the glass.
