Irish Maid Cocktail

Irish Maid Cocktail

The Irish Maid Cocktail is a classic cocktail made with Irish Whiskey, lemon juice, and simple syrup. It’s the perfect sipping cocktail for St. Paddy’s Day.




Honey Simple Syrup

  1. Add 2 parts simple syrup and 1 part honey to a small saucepan. Heat until the honey is dissolved.
  2. Pour into a small glass jar (I use a small mason jar) and refrigerate until cool.

Irish Maid Cocktail

  1. Fill two highball glasses 3/4 full with ice.
  2. Add 1 ounce of Irish Whiskey to each.
  3. Add 3/4 ounce honey simple syrup to each glass.
  4. Add 3/4 ounce lemon juice to each glass.
  5. Add 3-4 ounces of club soda to each glass.
  6. Garnish each glass with a cucumber slice and a sprig of fresh mint.


You can make the honey simple syrup ahead of time in a large batch and use it as a sweetener for other cocktails, coffee or tea.
