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!

• 2 /12 oz Ransom Emerald 1865 (or an Irish style whiskey)
