You will find that the Emerald Isle is a minty gin cocktail that makes a great green drink for St. Patrick's Day parties. It is similar to the Caruso, which also uses green creme de menthe and adds dry vermouth to the mix.

A dash or two of bitters in the Emerald Isle does help the drink considerably and, while aromatic bitters are customary, mint bitters make an equally nice compliment. If you're feeling a little wild, orange bitters are quite interesting for the palate also.


Steps to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes.

  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
