The Demon Drink

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. Mixing mint tea, Jameson Irish Whiskey, lime juice and fresh cranberries, you can serve up to 12 people with delicious Halloween party drinks that are so simple it’s scary.

  • 1 bottle of Jameson Original
  • 2.5 litres cranberry juice
  • 500ml strongly brewed mint tea (6 teabags)
  • 100ml raspberry cordial
  • Sugar syrup (100g sugar & 100ml water)
  • Slices of oranges, limes & raspberries
  • The zest & juice of 6 limes
  • Stir sugar syrup 100ml raspberry cordial, raspberries and lemon zest in a bowl.
  • Leave the mix to infuse for 2 hours.
  • Sieve 6 mint teabags into another large bowl.
  • Sieve the raspberry, sugar and lemon mix into the mint tea.
  • Add 2.5 litres of cranberry juice, the juice from 6 limes and one bottle of Jameson.
