The Kilbeggan Dubliner cocktail.

It's Halfway Day! That means it's only a mere six months to your favorite, boozy holiday: St. Patrick's Day. And we'd like to celebrate with a bit of Irish whiskey, Kilbeggan. While you can always drink Kilbeggan straight up (it's known for its silky smooth texture and full-bodied flavor, making it an easy pour), you can mix up a true Dublin-inspired cocktail to kick off your Halfway Day celebrations. 

Ingredients

  • parts Kilbeggan® Irish Whiskey
  • parts sweet vermouth
  • 1 1/2  parts cherry syrup
  • 1 1/2  parts cranberry juice
  • dash simple syrup

Directions

Combine all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake for 60 seconds. Strain neat into a martini glass. Garnish with a black cherry.
 

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
