Made with none other than Teeling Whiskey.

Nip into the Teeling Distillery and warm your insides with one. You won’t regret it.

2. This Tanora cocktail


Rather aptly named the “Mai Tai Baiii”. Available in Bar Pigale, Cork.

3. This creation starring Guinness, orange juice and champagne

The O'Neal. Orange Juice, Champagne, and Guinness. Surprisingly delicious.

Known as The Redleg Rebellion.

Teeling Whiskey and pineapple whipped up together for a fruity cocktail with a kick.

Available in The Liquor Rooms and MVP.

6. Buckfast Lives Forever

Okay, this technically isn’t available to purchase anywhere, but the winner of the first ever Buckfast Cocktail Competition surely deserves a mention.

Bastible‘s local spin on the classic cocktail is a must.

8. The Samuel Beckett

9. A Michael Collins

Like a Tom Collins — gin, sugar, lemon and fizzy water — but made with whiskey.

“One Michael Collins, please.”
