-Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey
We know, it’s not even Halloween yet. But you might as well start gearing up for the holiday season now, and what better way to do it than to kick off the festivities with a strong cocktail. It’s the Betty way to welcome the holidays. Let the shopping, turkey carving, and all around madness begin!
1 ½ oz of Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey
½ oz of Sour Apple Mix
3 oz of Cranberry Juice
1. Shake ingredients together in a metal shaker with ice, and pour into a chilled martini glass. Chill a martini glass by filling it with cold water and ice and let it sit while you’re making your cocktail.
HOT TULLAMORE TODDY
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
3 pieces Cardamon
2 pieces Anise
1 tablespoon Allspice
1 very small Vanilla Stick (or half a large one)
1 ½ oz Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey
1. Heat brown sugar and water to a simmer, add cardamon, anise, and allspice. When adding vanilla stick, cut down the middle and scrape out the insides into the pot.
2. When this “Toddy Mix” is done, mix 1 ½ oz of it with 1 ½ oz of Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey in an irish coffee glass.
3. Garnish with a lemon peel (possibly flamed) or cinnamon stick.
