  • This is tasty, but hard not to be when you start with the Redbreast, right? I didn't have the Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel-Aged, used some walnut bitters. — ★★★★
  • Too much Fee's. — ★★★

<br />Two oz of Redbreast!. Like all good Catholics, I said a prayer. After all, I was using one of the best Irish Whiskies known to mankind. I quickly rinsed the glass with the Green Chartreuse, and then carefully poured in one of the best vermouths (just short of Holy Water), Carpano Antica Formula, next tossed in the three dashes of Fees Bros. bitters, then quickly looked Heavenward, and slowly took hold of the Redbreast, while praying I didn't drop the bottle (a surefire one-way trip to Hell). Finally,, I carefully measured and slowly poured God's gift to Ireland.

Down the amber liquid went, into the glass, nary a splash landed outside the glass. A slow stir to mix it all, and now-- it was ready. But was it all worthy of the Redbreast? I took a very slow...lingering sip.

My prayer was answered indeed! This is a cocktail worthy of Redbreast Irish Whiskey. Definitely. Most definitely! You can and should enjoy a Tipperary with its 4.5 rating and my blessing.
