I am hooked on a show on Spike TV called Bar Rescue. In this show, Jon Taffer brings in experts, including himself, to evaluate and turn around under performing bars/restaurants or "Pub and Grubs". One part of the show is mixologists developing new drinks for the "revamped" bars. On one show, he described an Irish drink he had developed and the way he described it sounded delicious. The problem..he never give the full recipe. As the mixologist gave two of the ingredients, lime juice and ginger, I knew that I wanted a concoction with those two ingredients in it. What did I come up with...The Irish Beauty!
So, here we go!
3 oz Bushmills Irish Whiskey
1/2 oz FRESH SQUEEZED lime juice
1 oz Simple Syrup
1/4 t. ground ginger
1.5 oz ginger ale
1) Place first 4 ingredients in a shake with ice and shake for 60 seconds.
2) Pour into a glass which has a large amount of ice in it~you want this drink COLD!
3) Top with ginger ale and stir very gently
4) Garnish with lime slice
