Instead of green beer or a whiskey shot, why not make a cocktail for St. Patrick’s Day! The Copywriter is a tall, cool whiskey lemonade that is enriched with honey and a little sweet vermouth.
Ingredients (makes one cocktail)
1/2 ounce hot water
1/2 ounce honey
2 ounces Irish whiskey
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
1/2 ounce honey syrup
lemon twist garnish
For the honey syrup: Stir together hot water and honey until the honey dissolves
For the cocktail: Add whiskey, lemon, sweet vermouth, and honey syrup to a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake until well-chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into an ice-filled Collins glass. Top with seltzer and garnish with a lemon twist.
