|Doesn't look Irish to me|
We take a conservative approach and our Mr. Boston book makes no reference to dropping the lime peel in the glass. That is fortunate, since we tend to use the green plastic lime and I didn’t want to drop half the bottle into our glass. It also specified club soda as our carbonated water. For our whiskey, we went with Jameson, the preferred whiskey of Jimmy McNulty. I’d like to say that we bought the Jameson because of that, but it was mostly because it was the only Irish whiskey we could find in a 375ml bottle and we had to get out of the store fast because Omar comin’.
