Black Thorn (Irish)
A good drop of the Irish — something with a bit of weight to it — is ideal for mixing. Not as big in the mix as rye, nor as smoky as some Scotch, Irish whiskey hits that Goldilocks quotient of being ‘just right’, as it is here in the Black Thorn.
  1. Stir down all ingredients over ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
