The martini has truly transcended the world of the cocktails, as there are cocktails that aren’t even really associated with alcohol in general. Specifically, there are martinis that have dessert themes, because they are one of the most popular kinds of drinks in the world.

In this manner, there are people who may not be the biggest fans of vodka and gin who still want to enjoy the aura of a “martini”. In this manner, the Irish martini was born – a martini for whiskey lovers. Similarly, the drink can be compared to the Smoky Martini, which has scotch in it. This is a great way for whiskey lovers to drink their whiskey with a new sophisticated twist.

Ingredients:

  • ½ ounce of Irish whiskey
  • ½ ounce of dry vermouth
  • 2 ounces of vodka
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Pour the Irish whiskey into a martini glass, and swirl the whiskey,
  2. Pour the vodka and vermouth into a cocktail shaker over cracked ice.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Strain the vodka and vermouth into the glass.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glass

The drink is truly a unique martini, in that it incorporates whiskey. The combination of whiskey and vermouth is an extremely rare one, which is what makes the Irish Martini truly unique. While it may not be green beer or a green cocktail, the Irish Martini is a great way to celebrate anything decidedly Irish, whether it’s St.Patrick’s Day or a Notre Dame football game.

There are many people that drink a separate variation that includes Baileys, although this is not necessary by any means. Some people like to accent the “Irish” part of the martini by adding a green stirring rod to the cocktail. The most common garnish associated with the rare whiskey-based martini is the lemon, although no real garnish is needed. If you’re into whiskey, love martinis of all sorts, or feel like serving something sophisticated to an Irish friend or someone who is a fan of Irish culture, try out an Irish martini today!
