Review:

The original equal parts whiskey and dry vermouth recipe is way too dry, so in time for Saint Patrick's Day 2016, we experimented and concluded that splitting the vermouth proportion evenly between dry and sweet vermouths was the 'perfect' solution, producing an aromatic balanced cocktail with faint hints of anise from the absinthe.

History:

This cocktail first appeared (as Black Thorn Irish) in Harry Johnson's 1900 Bartender's Manual where he stipulates "3 or 4 dashes of absinthe; 3 or 4 dashes of bitters (Boker's genuine only); 1/2 wine glass of French vermouth; 1/2 wine glass of Irish whiskey."

Nutrition:

There are approximately 177 calories in one serving of Blackthorn Irish.
