After the Race

Named for the James Joyce story in which a few lads have one increasingly wild night, this cocktail is a simple way to drink what you really want on St. Paddy's Day (i.e. whiskey) while still participating in the green festivities. 

If green beer is not your thing, drop a few of these mint-infused ice cubes into a rocks glass and pour over a dram of your favorite Irish whiskey. 

This recipe originally appeared in Beardition's culture rag issue 002.

 

To make the ice: 

  1. Mix one part Mint Julep cocktail mixer with three parts water and stir. 
  2. Line the bottom of an ice mold with fresh mint leaves.
  3. Pour the liquid into the ice mold over the fresh mint and allow to freeze overnight.
