Irish Old Fashioned’s + An American-Irish Feast!

I have been saving my Irish Whiskey Honey Mustard I mentioned in my last post about Spirit & Co. Corned Beef is honestly one of my favorite foods, and I was so excited to be able to cook one early in March just to write this post. Oh don’t be fooled, I will also be enjoying one on St. Patricks Day in a few days, but because I wanted to show you how necessary this Honey Mustard is for your American-Irish feast, I had to do it beforehand.

Spirit & Co. Makes a line of amazing sauces, including steak sauces, ketchup, and more. I was blessed to be sent some of their amazing products and fell head over heels for every single one! As you can see here, these some of my pairings from another few meals. Now that St. Paddy’s Day is coming up, I wanted to highlight this gem, plus a perfect cocktail pairing for your holiday.

Liberties Irish Whiskey is ideal for anytime of year, but I have been enjoying it almost all of March so far. I wanted to make a luxurious cocktail, since we were celebrating my recent good health news, so I had to break out The Liberties 10 Year Single Malt. On it’s own it’s fantastic, bold, spicy, and smooth. However, made into an Old Fashioned cocktail, it’s just incredible!

The pairing with the salty corned beef, and sweet delicious honey mustard was great with the cocktail. It all worked so well together, and went down very smoothly. The honey mustard is not too overbearing with the whiskey flavor so you’re in luck with pairings, as well as pleasing many palates. The whiskey itself is awesome, I recommend enjoying it neat or on the rocks, for those true Irish Whiskey flavors.

Happy St. Patricks Day to those who celebrate! Always remember, eat what you like and drink what you love. Please pair responsibly!
