Irish Whiskey - 1 oz
Mandarine Napoléon - 1 oz
Honey - 1 tsp
Lemon - 6 quarters
Orange - 2 quarters
Muddle the fruit in an old-fashioned glass. Dissolve the honey in whiskey and pour everything over the fruit. Fill with crushed ice and churn. Garnish with orange and lemon wheels.
Invented by Philip Duff of the Door 74, Amsterdam, as an “Irish Caipirinha”.
The recipe from “Beachbum Berry Remixed” wasn’t exactly very detailed, it uses vague words like “Place lemon triangles in an old-fashioned glass until the glass is one-quarter full, then fill the glass to the halfway point with orange triangles…” So this is my interpretation of it, and it seemed to have worked quite well.
Use a large old-fashioned glass for this, at least 12-ounce or more. You can always be a bit more generous with the lemon quarters (or “triangles” as the book would prefer to call it), considering the amount of sweeteners in this one: an ounce of mandarin liqueur and 2 barspoons of honey (changed it into a teaspoon, I don’t think you need any more than that). Mandarine Napoléon can be replaced by Grand Marnier if the former is unavailable, but the result will be far less interesting.
Overall the drink is tasty, a blend of orange, lemon, mandarin and honey flavours mixed with smooth Irish whiskey. A little too sweet to begin with, but the crushed ice should resolve that in no time.
