Jameson drinks, Irish whiskey cocktails

Got Irish whiskey? We’ve got Jameson drinks! Irish whiskey has a unique flavor that’s altogether unlike other types of whiskey. The flavor is light and fruity, with a lightly floral scent and hints of nutty and vanilla tones. The finish is smooth and mellow, compared to the spicier finish of bourbon or rye whiskey.

Here are the top Irish whiskey drinks that make the best of its smooth flavor! Try it in an Irish mule, or go for the even more delicious Irish Sour. Mix them up as Jameson cocktails, or use any Irish whiskey you have on hand. They work as St Patricks’ Day drinks, too! But of course, we prefer them on the regular!
