Review:

A riff on a Oriental, mellowed by the use of Irish whiskey in place of American rye whiskey.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2001 by cocktail guru and author Gary "gaz" Regan. This recipe is from his 2003 book, The Joy of Mixology.

JAMES JOYCE COCKTAIL
FAMILY: NEW ORLEANS SOURS
I created this one in 2001 while conducting bartender-training seminars. It's a simple variation on the Oriental Cocktail recipe found in 1930's Savoy Cocktail Book. Rye whiskey and white curaçao were employed in the Oriental Cocktail, so it didn't take a mastermind to twist that drink to create this one.
1½ ounces Irish whiskey
¾ ounce sweet vermouth
¾ ounce triple sec
½ ounce fresh lime juice

SHAKE AND STRAIN into chilled cocktail glass.

Gary Regan, The Joy of Mixology, 2001


This cocktail has become an appropriate toast for celebrants of Bloomsday on the 16th of June each year.
