Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

We shook off some here at home! The shaker has been doing a good job here the last few months and I can say I'm having a lot of fun with it. Also because the photos often turn out so beautiful and the cocktails look fantastic. This time we travel to Ireland for a classic Irish Maid Whiskey cocktail. This falls under the Whiskey sours because we also use lemon juice. The combination with the cucumber makes it a nice fresh cocktail. Enjoy but drink in moderation, this cocktail also has a high alcohol percentage. Do you want to give him virgin? Of course you can!

Nice story behind this Irish Maid Whiskey cocktail is the bottle of Jameson that you see in the photo. We got married in 2008 and celebrated our honeymoon in Ireland. During a tour of the Jameson distillery we bought two Distillery spare bottles. Aged for twelve years, a beautiful keepsake. One was for my father and it has been in his closet for years and years.

Sadly he passed away in 2019 and my husband inherited the contents of his liquor cabinet. There was also this bottle that he had never opened. With that, the Whiskey has been in the bottle for 26 years now, and the circle has come full circle again with this bottle now in the liquor cabinet at our house.

Irish Maid Whiskey Cocktail

This Irish Maid Whiskey cocktail is a delicious drink for a warm summer evening or a cozy drink. So it is very fresh and fruity because of the cucumber and lemon juice, which form a perfect balance with the sweet and smoky taste of the whiskey. The advantage of whiskey is that it has a very long shelf life. So you don't have to worry if you don't drink it that often.

You can leave even an opened bottle in your cupboard for years and years without the quality deteriorating. This cocktail is also very easy to make, all you need is a shaker, a muddler and a sieve. You can serve the cocktail in a nice glass with ice cubes and a slice of cucumber as a garnish. Enjoy this refreshing Irish Maid Whiskey cocktail!

Here you will find the complete recipe with all the ingredients you need. I hope you have fun preparing the dish below.

  • 80 ml Irish Whiskey - Jameson
  • 30 ml lemon juice
  • 50 ml elderflower liqueur - (St Germain)
  • 30 ml sugar syrup

And this is how you make it:

  • With your muddler (a kind of pestle) you crush the cucumber in the shaker.
  • Pour in the whiskey, liqueur, lemon juice, and syrup and add a few ice cubes. Shake well.
