Here are more Celtic cocktail recipes that are perfect for a Celtic wedding theme and an Irish toast or two! They're even pretty tasty if your not getting married any time soon.


Celtic Cup

(Makes about 6 drinks)

9 ounces Scotch whisky
1 jigger / shot cherry brandy
1 jigger / shot sweet (red) vermouth
1 jigger / shot lemon juice

Club soda, chilled

Mix whiskey, brandy, vermouth, and lemon juice in a pitcher. Chill. To serve, pour in equal amounts over cocktail glasses filled with ice. Top each drink with a splash of club soda.

There are many good reasons for drinking,

One has just entered my head:

If a man doesn't drink when he's living,

How the hell can he drink when he's dead?


Irish Fix

1 Tablespoon simple syrup*
1 jigger / shot Irish whiskey
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Irish Mist liqueur

Garnish: Lemon and orange slices, quartered

Pour syrup, whiskey, and lemon juice into an ice-filled cocktail glass. Float about a teaspoon of Irish Mist liqueur on top, then garnish.

*To make simple syrup, heat equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook just long enough to melt the sugar. If the syrup turns slightly golden brown as it cooks, that’s OK. Cool, then chill, before serving in an iced beverage. ( I keep a bottle of simple syrup in my refrigerator for using in many a cocktail recipe, smoothies, lemon / limeade, teas, and other sweetened beverages. It blends much easier into beverages than granulated sugar.)

May you die in bed at ninety-five years,
Shot by a jealous spouse!


Misty Irish

1 pony / short shot Irish whiskey
1/2 pony / short shot Irish Mist liqueur
1 pony / short shot orange juice
Splash lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup crushed ice

Garnish: maraschino cherries soaked in brandy

Pour all ingredients except the cherry garnish into a blender. Blend till smooth. Pour into ice-filled cocktail glass. Garnish with brandied cherry.

May God grant you always

A sunbeam to warm you,

A moonbeam to charm you,

A sheltering angel,
So nothing can harm you.

Rocky Green Dragon

(He’s a potent dragon, a fire breather, so go easy on this one. He’s a sipper.)

1 jigger / shot gin
1 pony / short shot green Chartreuse liqueur
1 pony / short shot brandy

Shake all ingredients together in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Strain into ice-filled cocktail glass.

Tame this dragon by filling the glass half full with the drink and top it off with club soda.

As you slide down the banisters of life,
May the splinters never point the wrong way.
