Sip Spotlight: Blackberry Miúil

Although we don’t think you ever need a reason to enjoy a cocktail, we love when opportunities present themselves. St. Patrick’s Day is one of those rare occasions when day drinking is acceptable, if not encouraged.

Instead of starting your day with kegs & eggs, awaken your inner leprechaun with this Irish spin on a mule.

For this cocktail, we’re pairing Blackberry Lemon Thyme Mixicles (found in our Distinctive Collection) with Jameson Irish whiskey and ginger beer. The result is an invigorating yet balanced effervescent combination with notes of vanilla, dark berry, and citrus. Sláinte!

  • 2 Blackberry Lemon Thyme Mixicles cubes
  • 2.5 oz. Irish whiskey
  • Ginger beer to top
  • Lemon and thyme sprigs for garnish

How to Mix:

  • Add the Mixicles cubes and Irish whiskey to a rocks glass and stir. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with fresh thyme and a lemon twist or wheel.
