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.



  • 2-ounces Irish Whiskey
  • 1 1/2-ounces honey simple syrup
  • 1 TBS honey
  • 1 1/2-ounces lemon juice
  • 68 ounces club soda
  • 2 cucumber slices for garnish
  • 2 fresh mint sprigs for garnish


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.

  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.

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.
