Irish Breakfast



I hope you didn't click on this post thinking you were going to be treated to a Full Irish Breakfast of strong tea, eggs, bacon, baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, toast, and homemade jam. God that sounds wonderful! But alas I didn't have the energy or available stomach space last weekend {because of the Irish Festival} to produce such a culinary miracle - maybe in a future post. I did however want to make my ancestors proud so I made the next best thing.....a cocktail bearing the same name!

On St. Patrick's Day this year I actually found myself having a great brunch at Can Can with a friend. As I was perusing the cocktail list I came across a martini called The Irish Breakfast- sold! It was ridiculously yummy so I decided to re-create it at home. One could argue that this was a far better way to honor my Irish ancestors anyway:). Essentially a mimosa with a couple other special ingredients, this drink would be perfect for your next brunch gathering. 

The Irish Breakfast 

1 shot Irish Whiskey (I used Jameson)
1 shot Orange Juice
A nice pour of Prosecco
A dash of Butterscotch Liquor

Shake the ingredients over ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with orange. I would also recommend turning on the Kate Rusby Pandora station and starting a fire while enjoying this cocktail.

{ Whiskey and Butterscotch give the drink a wonderful warmth }

{ I love the smell of fresh oranges }

{ A sprig of fresh rosemary would also be a beautiful garnish }
