Weekend Whiskey Cocktails – No.2 – Cork County Bubbles

County Cork has the distinction of being both the largest and second most populous county in Ireland. It also happens to be home to the Jameson distillery, birthplace of the famed Irish whiskey responsible for giving this refreshing, effervescent cocktail its dangerously boozy kick. An ounce of the nutty stuff delivers the perfect punch, while alpine-scented Chartreuse, honey syrup and zesty lemon work to brighten the whiskey’s dark-cherry undertones. Topped with dry, bubbly champagne, this deceptively potent cocktail goes down faster than Jess Willard facing Jack Dempsey’s mighty Irish fists.



1 oz Irish whiskey, preferably Jameson 12 Year Old Special Reserve

¼ oz Yellow Chartreuse

½ oz fresh lemon juice

1½ tsp honey syrup

1 oz chilled champagne

1 lemon twist



Pour the whiskey, Chartreuse, lemon juice and honey syrup into an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake well. Strain into a frosty champagne flute, top with champagne and add a lemon twist for garnish. This is one of the best whiskey cocktails going. enjoy
