The Paddy Melt Cocktail

Staff Writer

Created by Death & Co.'s Joaquin Simo, this Irish whiskey cocktail is "an easy-drinking riff on a Whiskey Sour that appeals to drinkers of all ages and sexes. The floral notes of the Meletti complement the chamomile in the soft, mellow 80-proof Overholt."

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
