"There are a lot of people afraid to try a brown liquid, so distillers have been coming out with a lot of flavored whiskeys," Goumas says. Today, Rula Bula will introduce one of these concoctions: Bushmills Irish Honey, made from a blend of Bushmills Original and honey from the Emerald Isle. "It's smooth and a lot sweeter," Goumas says. "It's a great introduction for people not used to drinking whiskey."
It's also great for making cocktails. Try the recipe below during your St. Paddy's revelry.
