Lots of cocktail recipes are what you have to call “modern” — mixologist-driven gastronomic inventions that stimulate the palate (and the mind) with new-fangled ingredients and newish liquors. Well, how about something that sounds just basically old-school and simple? That’s what this twofer says to us, which we’re calling Italrish Amaretto. It’s a the perfect concoction for Father’s Day (June 19).
1.25 oz. Irish whiskey, such as Tullamore Dew.
3/4 oz. Amaretto di Saranno almond liqueur.
Making it: Fill a glass 2/3rds full of ice. Add amaretto, then add whiskey. Stir until chilled, and strain into a rocks glass.
