8 Irish Cocktail Recipes Made With Irish Whiskey
It won’t take long to whip up one of these Irish cocktail recipes—as long as you’ve got Irish whiskey on hand!
Taste of Home
Easy Irish Cream
This simple and delicious Irish Cream will win the approval of both iced coffee and hot coffee lovers. Its silky smooth texture goes down easy. Plus, the secret ingredient to this Taste of Home favorite (chocolate syrup!) sweetens the drink to perfection.
Classic Irish Mule
You can add some fresh-squeezed lime juice to a glass of ginger ale and Jameson to create an Irish Mule. It’s an understated choice, but definitely a classic. You can get Jess’ Irish whiskey recipe from her blog Flying on Jess Fuel.
Jameson Irish Redhead Cocktail
If you’re looking for a way to sweeten your Irish whiskey recipe, try creating a Jameson Irish Redhead, inspired by Mayre Audet-White’s recipe. The main ingredients, well, other than Jameson of course, are Sprite and grenadine. This cocktail might even remind you of an ice-cold Shirley Temple. But don’t worry—it’s still an adults-only drink.
This Irish coffee recipe is easy to make and has plenty of coffee flavor. It’s a simple blend of whiskey and coffee, but can easily be dressed up with toppings like whipped cream, chocolate shavings or even nutmeg or cinnamon.

Jameson Old Fashioned
The Irish love some good, old-fashioned craic (which is slang for “fun” in the Emerald Isle), but regardless of heritage, most people love Old Fashioneds. Try a Jameson Old Fashioned from Cake ‘n Knife. The combination of ingredients and flavors produces a smooth, satisfying drink.
