Cocktail of the Week: Knappogue Castle Irish Whiskey

15th March 2019 // By Lauren Hill

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this weekend with Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Irish Whiskey cocktails created by Joaquín Símo of Pouring Ribbons in New York City.

Crossing Currents

  • 2 oz Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Irish Whiskey
  • 0.75 oz Contratto Bianco
  • 1 tsp Kalani Coconut Liqueur
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters

To make this cocktail yourself, combine all ingredients, stir and strain into a cocktail glass before garnishing with lemon peel that’s been trimmed and expressed.

Commenting on this creation, Joaquín Símo of Pouring Ribbons says: “This tropical reinvention of the classic Manhattan may convince you that the isle of Ireland could have once been part of the Caribbean. Knappogue’s honeyed richness pairs beautifully with the bianco vermouth’s herbal notes and Angostura’s allspice goodness, with a delicate note of toasted coconut arriving late at the finish.”
