Make a proper St. Patrick's Day cocktail with Strandhill Public's help
Rory Martin grew up above a pub, poured his first Guinness before he hit puberty and hates it when Americans say St. Paddy's Day like it has two Ts — St. Patty's Day.
What's happening: The proprietor of two of the area's most authentic modern pubs, called Strandhill Public — on Causeway Boulevard in Brandon and Palm Avenue in Tampa — seemed like the perfect Irishman to ask for a cocktail recipe to help set us right for next week.
His pick: The Shergar. Martin concocted the drink and named it after the legendary Irish racehorse, "a big stallion with a feckin' dangler," he says.
- The bright lime juice balances the sweetness of the liqueurs and centers the rum-flavored whiskey.
The recipe: Shake the following vigorously with ice and serve in a cocktail glass with a twist of lime.
- 1.5 ounces Tullamore D.E.W. XO Caribbean Rum Cask Finish
- 0.5 ounces Giffard Créme de Cacao
- 0.5 ounces Giffard Banane du Brésil
- 0.5 ounces fresh-squeezed lime juice
Bonus points if you toast Sligo, Martin's hometown on Ireland's northwestern coast.
🇮🇪 What's ahead: Both Strandhill locations are offering Irish whiskey promos and Paddy's Day swag all day on March 17.
