Tullamore’s Ginger D.E.W cocktail

The Irish are well known for their dancing, and this month’s cocktail muddles an abundance of Irishness and ginger to create a playful part of your palate. Though they are very different, ginger ale and Tullamore D.E.W. Irish whiskey have much in common. Their colours are similar; each has its own fragrant aroma and uncompromising flavour.  The spiciness of the ginger blends beautifully with the light spice in Tullamore D.E.W.’s pot still content and together, these qualities dance a tango on the tongue. Triple the smoothness, triple the character and triple the flavour, the Ginger D.E.W. is sure to provide and amusing kick to your summer.
