Review:

The quality of your pomegranate (grenadine) syrup will make of break this cocktail. (Perhaps even better with groseille syrup.)

History:

Adapted from a recipe created by Aaron Wall at his Homeboy bar in Islington, London, England. Now with two bars and counting, the Taoiseach remains one of Homeboy's signature cocktails. Originally made with Redbreast 12 pot still Irish whiskey.

Pronounced 'Tee-shock', this cocktail is named after the title of the first minister of government in Ireland. Aaron says, "Literally translated teh name would mean Chieftain and this drink is a twist on an old rum drink, El Presidente, even thought the Irish word for president is Uachtaran Na hEireann but we thought that might be a bit tricky for the Anglo Saxon vocabulary. This drink is the perfect example of how Irish whiskey can sit in many positions like the age rum realm when it comes to making cocktails. "
