Tipperary Cocktail Recipe

The Tipperary Cocktail is one of my favorite summer classics.

The Tipperary originated in 1917 and is named for Tipperary, a county in Ireland. A classic summer cocktail, using the Irish Whiskey Bushmills Original from the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, Bushmills has a high-quality original whiskey that makes this cocktail shine.

A Classic Cocktail

The Tipperary Cocktail was published in these books by famous bartenders in the 1920’s and 1930’s, which helped it gain quite a bit of popularity:

Ensslin’s recipe calls for equal parts in this cocktail variation.

Harry MacElhone’s variation uses 1/2 ounce of Green Chartreuse, 2 ounces Irish Whiskey, and 1 ounce sweet vermouth.

Harry Craddock’s Tipperary recipe returns to equal parts.

In trying multiple variations of the Tipperary, I settled on this rendition, which uses more Irish Whiskey and also a bit of dilution with chilled water and simple syrup. My test subjects found the original cocktails to be pretty strong and this recipe seemed to provide an excellent balance of drinkability and homage to its origins.
