  • For the Cookie Crust:

  • 1/2 cup
  • 2 tbsp (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • Process the cookies in a food processor until ground to coarse crumbs.
  • Pour in the melted butter and pulse until the butter is thoroughly combined.
  • Press mixture evenly over the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate.
  • Using a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the yolks and the egg in a large bowl on high speed about 5 minutes, until thick.
  • In a small bowl, combine the gelatin and creme de menthe; let soften for 5 minutes.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the water and sugar and simmer until the mixture reaches the soft ball stages, registering between 234 and 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer.

WHISKEY
Like all the best conversations, the one between Jameson’s Head of Whiskey Science and the Head Brewer of a local craft beer brewery, started at the bar. A swapping of whiskey and beer barrels soon after, resulted in Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition - triple-distilled, blended Irish Whiskey that has been patiently finished in Irish craft beer-seasoned barrels.
