Mint Green Old Fashioned


This newly created Old Fashioned is bright green and it’s perfect cocktail to sip on in St. Patrick’s Day.






  • 2 ounce Dewar’s 12-year Scotch whisky
  • 1 quarter round piece orange
  • 1 Bordeaux maraschino cherry
  • 1 mint sprig
  • 1/4 ounce Monin Mint Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp mint jelly*
  • 1 dash Fee Brothers mint bitters
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • Splash of water
  • 1 mint sprig

How to prepare The Mint Green Old Fashioned Cocktail:

With exception of whisky, muddle all the ingredients in a mixing glass.  Make sure to crush everything into a consistent paste.  After muddling, remove the spent fruit husks and crushed leaves/stems, but keep the flavor paste in the glass. Pour the whisky and some ice, and stir well to chill and dilute. Strain into a glass (preferably Old Fashioned glass) over fresh ice, and garnish with the mint sprig.
