Brainstorming for Happy Hour

Brainstorm Cocktail Recipe - Absolut DrinksIrish Whiskey has the reputation of not being exactly an easy choice when you want to make a cocktail based on it. That is partly due to the slightly smoky dominant taste of the drink, which can be hard to tame, and partly due to a more traditional aspect which Irish Whiskey drinkers (and the Irish, of course) want to preserve. The brainstorm is an excellent choice to showcase the potency of Irish whiskey.


  • Cracked ice
  • 2 oz Irish Whisky
  • 1/2 tsp dry white vermouth
  • 1/2 tap Benedictine
  • Orange peel


Use a shaker to shake the whiskey, vermouth, and Bénédictine well with cracked ice. Strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with twist of orange peel. Another suggestion would be to mix all the ingredients directly with a few ice cubes in an Old Fashioned glass.
