This week, in honour of St. Patrick’s Day, Cocktail Maestro Norm Owen offers up alternatives to the dreaded green beer! Including a couple of great cocktails – the Black Velvet, and the Fighting Irish Punch.
This one couldn’t be simpler, and may sound strange – but try it! You’ll be surprised…
Pour equal parts stout and sparkling wine into any glass. That’s it! Enjoy!

1 oz Irish whiskey
1oz Blended scotch
.75 oz green Chartreuse
.75 oz lemon juice
.75 oz pineapple juice
.5 oz orgeat (almond syrup)
