Here are all the best Jameson drinks and Irish whiskey cocktails! Make these festive mixed drinks using the Irish whiskey you have on hand.
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!
And now…the top Jameson drinks & Irish whiskey cocktails!
Jameson and other types of Irish whiskey
Jameson Irish whiskey is the best selling Irish whiskey in the world. It’s made from a blend of grain whiskey and single pot still whiskey, made from Irish barley. There’s no peat incorporated in the manufacturing process, so the whiskey has no smoky or spicy notes like a Scotch whisky. Instead, Irish whiskey tastes light and fruity, with a lightly floral scent and hints vanilla. It’s the easiest to drink of all types of whiskey, making a great intro for drinkers new to whiskey.
