Drunken Leprechaun Recipe
Many people will be looking for a fun, festive drink to share with friends and family members on St. Patrick's Day. The Drunk Leprechaun has created just such a concoction! Made with whiskey, Guinness, and lemon juice, this cocktail is one that everyone will enjoy. You can even take it a notch higher by rimming it with green sugar crystals.
1 can Guinness Beer
½ cup White sugar
1 oz. Freshly squeezed lemon juice
1½ oz. Honey syrup
1 oz. Guinness Reducted simple syrup, see recipe above
3 oz. Jameson Irish Whiskey
Pour the Guinness beer into a pan and bring to a boil.
Let it simmer on low heat until the mixture becomes thicker and the liquid has reduced to about half the amount.
Let it cool and pour into a container. Set it aside.
Pour all cocktail ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice
Shake well and strain them into a coupe glass.
Garnish the cocktail with mint leaves. Serve and enjoy!
I have a question. Does the beer have to be guinness?
