Blind Tiger

Blind-Tiger-1

Today I’ve got a lively and flavorful concoction for Irish Whiskey Month! Teeling Small Batch is joined by Jamaican Rum, Citrus sherbet, and a bunch of herbaceousness for this exciting tipple.

If you wanna join the party, use the hashtag #IrishWhiskeyMonth on Instagram and I’ll repost your photo! The only rule is that you have to include Irish Whiskey in your cocktail.

Yeah y’all, my fave split base is back in action! If you haven’t put Teeling Small Batch with Smith & Cross Jamaican Rum, you need to step to it!

Cast of Characters:

  1. I wanted to use Citrus Sherbet with Teeling Irish Whiskey and Smith & Crosss cause I thought they would make some serious magic together. Turns out they do!
  2. Then I wanted to add some herbaceous notes to the drink to add depth and make things more interesting. Since Amaro CioCiaro has a lot of Orange flavor, it seemed just right to compliment the Sherbet.
  3. Lastly, I added Dale Degroff’s Pimento Bitters because they have Wormwood, Anise, and spices. Basically, I wanted to make things even more interesting.
