Irish Gold is a recipe a user sent to us (thanks, JM!), invented by the Tullamore D.E.W. company. It’s a lovely, light highball that matches the gentle flavor of Irish whiskey to peach, orange and ginger flavors, and it makes for a fine brunch cocktail or daytime sipper.
Tullamore D.E.W.’s original recipe called for ginger ale. In the US, ginger ales tend to be a good deal sweeter than they are elsewhere, and the Irish folks behind this recipe were likely using a pretty dry style to balance the sweetness of the peach and orange. We think it’s better with spicier, less-sweet ginger beer, but if you live someplace where you can get good ginger ale, do try it here.
- 2 parts Irish whiskey
- ½ part Peach liqueur
- 1 splash Orange juice
- 4 parts Ginger beer or Ginger ale
Build the ingredients in a tall ice-filled glass, in the order given. Stir gently to combine, and garnish with a lime wheel.
