O'Briens has a fab whiskey sale on so here's two unreal cocktail recipes

Over the past 12 months, we've all probably tried our hand at some homemade cocktails. Well, lads, O'Briens has a fab Irish whiskey sale on at the moment.

So to celebrate, we thought we would showcase a couple of super tasty cocktails you can make at home. The sale taking place in their 34 stores across Ireland and online, so this is something we can all get involved in.

With that in mind, here are two classy and delicious cocktail recipes you should definitely try for yourself.

The Old Fashioned

Jameson Black Barrel is now €45 in O'Briens (save €5). Although it's easily enjoyed neat, it’s also great for the beloved classic The Old Fashioned.

It's matured in a combination of American oak, sherry casks and double charred bourbon barrels, comprising of a blend of 'small batch' grain and traditional Irish Pot Still whiskeys. The time spent maturing in these barrels results in intensified notes of vanilla sweetness and caramel, alongside toasted wood, fruit, and warm spice. In fact, Jameson Black Barrel won the double gold medal at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

So without further ado, here's how to use it to make the stunning Old Fashioned cocktail.

Ingredients you'll need:

  • 50ml Jameson Black Barrel
  • 5ml sugar syrup
  • 2 dashes of angostura bitters
  • 3 dashes of orange bitters

The method you'll follow:

  • Fill a glass or jug with ice
  • Add 50ml Jameson Black Barrel
  • Add 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • Add 3 dashes Orange Bitters
  • Stir until ice cold
  • Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass.
  • Garnish with an orange slice.

The Powers Sour

Powers is yet another beloved Irish Whiskey brand, with its origins dating back more than 200 years. And Powers Three Swallow Release is now available in O'Briens for just €40 (save €7.50).

Powers Three Swallow Release takes whiskey tradition into the 21st century, featuring all the singular characteristics of traditional Irish single pot still whiskey with some modern flair, made from a mash of malted and unmalted barley, then triple distilled in traditional copper pot stills.

And it makes for a gorgeous Powers Sour.

The ingredients you'll need:

  • 50ml Powers Three Swallow
  • 25ml freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 25ml sugar syrup
  • 1 egg white
