The Irish Whiskey Maid

March 16, 2021

This year we could definitely all use a little luck of the Irish. In honor of one of our favorite holidays - because who doesn't love an excuse to drink? - we reached out to Ransom Spirits. Their Emerald 1865 is (technically) an American whiskey, but it's renowned for being close to a classic Irish whiskey... and it's well worth searching for. We figured this made it the perfect choice for our Saint Patrick's Day cocktail. Sláinte!

THE IRISH WHISKEY MAID

Single Serving/Firelight 750 To-Go

• 2 /12 oz Ransom Emerald 1865 (or an Irish style whiskey)
• 1 / 6 oz fresh lime juice
• 0.75 / 4 oz simple syrup
• 3 /15 slices Japanese cucumber, muddled
• 2 /10 fresh mint leaves and cucumber slice for garnish

Oregon Father's Day Golf Adventure
Oregon Father's Day Golf Adventure

Locations that have become known as outdoor meccas don’t immediately bring to mind world glass golf courses but they often go hand in hand. With Father’s Day around the corner, we set out to plan the perfect father-son getaway to enjoy the great outdoors together. Such a trip wouldn’t be complete without a bike ride, a visit to a distillery and a round of golf, and it also goes without saying that our hotel would include a heated pool and hot tub in a picturesque setting. Finding a venue was a no brainer - Pronghorn Resort in Bend, OR. With prominent views of the snow capped Three Sisters, scenic bike paths, a golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, this trip is destined to be the ultimate bonding trip with Dad.

Cinco De Mayo is here and we're celebrating with some tasty tequila drinks courtesy of our friends at Suerte. Instead of a classic marg or just a lime infused cerveza, we're opting for some unique twists. We love any excuse to try out new cocktail recipes and taking them out for a test drive in our backyard, on a picnic with friends, or at the top of the peak we just hiked. Spring has sprung and we are toasting it - Salud!
