Happy weekend everyone, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. Today we’re making a ménage à trois of assertive, flavorful booze to help us forget the woes of the workweek.
As someone who is not the biggest fan of measuring alcohol, I tend to favour cocktails that require equal parts of three ingredients. The Irish Goodbye, which was created by Clyde Common’s Jeffrey Morgenthaler, contains Powers Irish whiskey, Lillet Blanc and Cynar. Rather than battle it out for dominance, the three work harmoniously to create a cocktail that’s kinda fruity, kinda woodsy, and quite stiff.
To make one yourself, you will need:
- 30ml Powers Irish Whiskey (or your favourite brand)
- 30ml Cynar
- 30ml Lillet Blanc
Add everything in a mixing glass filled with ice and stir until it is well chilled. Strain into a coupe glass.
