Ahh the 80’s. The decade that gave us shoulder pads, leg warmers, Rick Astley, big hair and stone washed denim. In the 80’s cocktails were big and mostly downright silly. Countless lethal combos of Irish Cream like the B-52 or Screaming Orgasm. Somehow Irish Cream survived the decade and today’s modern cocktails are much, much more sophisticated.
Feeney’s Irish Cream Liqueur is unlike other Irish Cream liqueurs – it’s fresh, rich and smooth with a not too strong whiskey finish. 100% grain whiskey is masterfully distilled in the heart of Ireland and matured for at least three years.
The barrel-aged whiskey is then blended with chocolate and fresh dairy cream from the cows grazing in the rich County Laois pastures: Ireland in a bottle. It takes only 24 hours to go from dairy to bottle, ensuring freshness.
As an after dinner treat it is hard to beat simply over ice, with coffee or as an indulgent cocktail. But Mother’s Day calls for treating Mum with something extra special: the Feeney’s G&Tea.
The liqueur’s freshness is what makes the sophisticated Feeney’s G&Tea so irresistible. The delicious chocolate and cream flavours with hints of vanilla and honey combine beautifully with a touch of orange, caramel and the not so secret ingredient – Chamomile tea.
40ml Feeney’s Irish Cream
10ml Bloom Gin
2 dashes of orange bitters
5ml Caramel Syrup
50ml Chamomile Tea
In a cocktail shaker, shake all the ingredients well with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a ½ strawberry & mint.
Also just in time for Mother’s Day for coffee loving mums, Dan Murphy’s have a Feeney’s Irish Iced Coffee Gift Pack. A 700ml bottle of Feeney’s Irish Cream Liqueur, glass and fun coffee bean silicone ice mould.
Consumers in the US recently voted Feeney’s ‘Platinum’ – Best of Class at the SIP Consumer Taste Awards. Feeney’s has also been awarded 4 out of 5 stars by the respected Difford’s Guide for Discerning Drinkers which describes it as: “Creamy with chocolate, hazelnuts and subtle whiskey and spice.” Feeney’s also won double gold at the ‘Oscars of Liquor’ – the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
