Sour Leprechaun

When it came time to make some green drinks for St. Patrick's Day, it was pretty obvious we had to reach for one of our favorite Irish Exports; Jameson. 

Jameson Irish Whiskey might be best consumed by the shot, but in this case, it's getting dressed up in a spin on a whiskey sour.

And the green color? Well, it's a pretty simple answer. Remember your color chart from a kid? Yellow and blue make green, right? So, just a tiny bit of blue curacao is all you need to balance the natural yellow color of Jameson and make one hell of a tasty green cocktail!
