Happy St Patrick's Day my lovelies. May you have a day filled with blessings and laughter.
The rain is battering my window and the green is glimpsed through the mists of grey. I've come in from walking the dogs and feeling a bit like a drowned rat.
To warm my chilled bones a hot whiskey is the ticket.
It has a lovely honey flavour with a burst of ginger and butterscotch, there are hints of toasted oat. It is smooth. A result of being tripled distilled and matured in charred bourbon barrels. Writerṣ Tears” is a old style Irish Pot still Whiskey, with its vatting of Single Malt and Single Pot Still whiskeys, it is distilled from 60% malt and 40% pot still.
Years of making hot whiskey's for customers means I know every trick in the book. The secret is to warm the glass before adding the whiskey. Put a teaspoon into a glass and fill with water that is just off the boil. Meanwhile stud a lemon with cloves. Being careful not to burn fingers, disgard the water from the glass, add the whiskey, clove studded lemon and add a good three fingers of Whiskey to the glass, fill with hot water, stirring to it swirls add a teaspoon of honey - or brown sugar. Stir until the sugar is disolved. Wrap a napkin around the glass so as not to burn your fingers and drink with your toes up in front of a roaring fire.
Happy St Patrick's Day!
That's it for now ...
