How To Make An Irish Margarita

  1. Pour 2 tablespoons of salt onto a small plate. Quarter one lime, rub one quarter around the rim of cocktail glass, dip rim of glass into the salt to create a salt rim, add ice to glass. You can either use a tall glass or a pint glass.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, add simple syrup, irish whiskey, and lime juice. Shake
  3. Pour over ice in cocktail glass, garnish with a lime round and mint sprig.
  4. This recipe creates a single glass of this great cocktail.

What Is The Difference In Irish Whiskey And Regular Whiskey

The main difference between the two amber spirits is the primary ingredients. The Irish use barley as their primary ingredient while the American whiskey generally uses corn, wheat, or rye. 

What Are The Best Irish Whiskeys?

Well, we recommend Jameson, which is used in this recipe.  Some other top sellers are Bushmills, Green Spot, Redbreast and West Cork.

Can You Make This Recipe Into A Pitcher Margarita?

Of Course!   Just remember the simple syrup and fresh lime juice are equal parts and the whiskey is double…  Be careful,  this recipe will be potent.
