Last night I enjoyed two firsts – my first trip to Scarlet, a casual fine dining restaurant and bar 3 blocks up from my apartment, and Jaminade, a concoction that never once crossed my mind as a tasty possibility before my visit. The night was definitely a great time had by all, fueled by pitcher upon pitcher of this icy, perfect-for-summer beverage. In fact, I’m quite glad I finally got around to visiting Scarlet; with Jaminade and a number of other cool treats offered on their menu, this summer looks like it’s going to be pretty sweet. Plus, Jaminade is super easy to make, so I’ll be sure to mix some up at home next time I need some cooling down. You should try it too:
Jameson Irish Whiskey
Fill a pitcher with ice. Dump in as much Jameson as you like – the friendly bartenders at Scarlet filled up our pitcher about halfway (I’m not kidding). Top with lemonade, and serve. Garnish with a lemon wedge, if you like.
Not quite sure about how whiskey and lemonade would taste? Neither was I. And honestly, I’m usually a Guinness and bourbon, neat, type of girl. But, it is fun to try new things… and Jameson definitely gives lemonade a swift kick.
Looking to fuel a bigger crowd? Try filling up the beverage bucket that Liz was raving about in her last post. You’ll be glad you did.
