The Bloody Molly
Whiskey? Beer? Bloodys? Why choose?!
It's our first recipe video! And how better to get things started with one of my all-time favorite Bloody Mary riffs - the Bloody Molly. Part boilermaker, part black-and-tan, this cocktail is perfect for St. Patrick's Day but delicious year-round.
Our mix of choice: Bloody Blue Ridge (Click here to snag some!)
2oz Irish whiskey
The juice of one-quarter lemon (call it half an ounce)
A good dash of Worcestershire Sauce (let's say a quarter ounce)
1 pint Guinness
You can garnish with a lemon wheel, but just drink it, eh?
1) Fill a pint glass halfway with ice.
2) Add the whiskey, the lemon juice (you can drop the lemon wedge into the glass), and the Worcestershire. Yes, Bloody Blue Ridge already has Worcestershire in it -- but since we're going to be mixing in a beer, a little extra umami won't hurt.
3) Top with 3-4 ounces of Bloody Blue Ridge. Visually, that should double the volume already in your glass, leaving it around three-quarters full. Give a good stir to combine.
4) Tilt the glass to a forty-five degree angle (don't spill!), and gently pour the Guinness down the side, straightening the glass as you fill it. Once the cocktail is full, pour the remaining Guinness into a second glass as a sidecar, or reserve it for the next round of Molly's.
5) You can stir to combine, or leave it alone to keep it layered (which I think is cooler). Sláinte mhaith!
