Drink recipe

Try a Halloween drink that nearly died thanks to Prohibition but now tastes out of this world thanks to Jameson Irish Whiskey, cranberry juice and mint tea.

  • 2½ Liters Cranberry Juice
  • Ice Cubes
  • 1 Bottle Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • 6 Whole Lime
  • 500 Milliliters Mint Tea
  • Orange
  • Raspberry
  • 100 Milliliters Raspberry Syrup
Units
  1. Make Raspberry syrup: Add 250g sugar, 250ml water and 100g raspberries to a pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Simmer for 2 minutes and remove from heat and allow to steep until cool. Strain, bottle and refrigerate.
  3. Add 6 mint teabags into a large bowl with 500ml boiling water and allow to steep until cool before removing teabags.
  4. Add 5 litres of cranberry juice, 100ml raspberry syrup, the juice from 6 limes and one bottle of Jameson.
  5. Add fruit slices and stir.
  6. Serve in rocks glass over ice.
  7. Garnish with raspberries and lime zest.

Halloween drinks like this one are becoming more and more popular but they nearly never happened at all. As prohibition hit the United States in the 1920s, there were calls to ban ‘the demon drink’ in Ireland. Thankfully it fell on deaf years and nearly 100 years later we honour that decision with one of the tastiest cranberry cocktails around.
