Typically, I like my Irish whiskey neat. But a few weeks ago we were at our dear friends home in Wisconsin. Our friend Jill, knowing we are Irish, thought we’d like a drink she found that was made with Jameson and tea. It was delicious, and it gave me the inspo to create my own whiskey drink. It’s roughly inspired by the Coopers Tea recipe she made us for that boat ride. It was delish, and believe it or not, quite refreshing.
1 cup apple cider
2 bags of black tea, preferably Barry’s
1/2 green apple, cut in small chunks, about a 1/4 inch
6 fresh basil leaves
4 oz. whiskey, local Minnesota O’Shaughnessy Keeper’s Heart is perfect for this drink
1 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. honey or simple syrup*
Soda water, an optional splash
Apple and lemon slices to garnish
In a small pot, brew the tea bags in the apple cider, and steep the tea off heat for 5-7 minutes. Remove the tea bags and let the mixture cool. This can be prepped and refrigerated ahead of time.
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the apple and basil, and add the whiskey, lemon juice, and honey. Pour in the apple tea mixture and fill the shaker with ice. Shake for 30 seconds.
Strain the mixture into glasses filled with ice, and top off with a bit of soda water for an extra refreshing drink (but that is totally optional!). Garnish with slices of apple and lemon and serve.
Makes 2-3 drinks
* simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water, simmered until sugar melts.
