Irish Cocktail #1

Generally I like to elaborate a bit more about a cocktail or recipe before I feature it, but this is an exception. As far as I know, this is the oldest cocktail recipe that I have made, dating back to 1895.


Irish Cocktail #1
Serves: 1
  • 1 ounce Irish whiskey
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 3 dashes orange bitters
  • 2 dashes acid phosphate
  1. Combine ingredients in mixing glass filled with ice.
  2. Stir until chilled and strain into cocktail glass.
This recipe is from 1895! It was featured in Modern American Drinks.
