These 3 Jameson Cocktails Will Add Fun to Your Weekend


It’s the weekend and it is that time to ease yourself of the stress of work, and we believe a glass of Jameson cocktail should do the magic.

If it were not so, Rihanna wouldn’t sing “let the Jameson sink in” in her famous weekend anthem, Cheers to the Freaking Weekend.

Cocktails can never be overrated, and whisky makes one of the best bases for cocktails. With the ever-reliable and extra smooth Jameson, your whisky cocktail experience is about to go over the top.

So to throw some colour into your weekend, we bring you three Jameson-based cocktails to set you on that smooth ride till Monday comes again.

Jameson, Ginger & Lime

This is about the most popular of all Jameson-based cocktails. It even comes as a special recommendation from the brand’s website, which describes it as a blend of “three refreshing elements that bring out the best in each other.”

What you need

  • 50ml of Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • Quality bottled ginger ale
  • Large wedge of lime

How to make

  • In a high ball glass, pour in some ice
  • Add a shot of Jameson
  • Pour in bottled ginger ale and stir briefly to mix
  • Garnish with a large wedge of lime; squeeze before dropping it into the glass

Irish Car Bomb

Do not let the name confuse you into thinking you can drink and drive – it is a crime to drink and drive, as well as a careless play with your life and that of others.

Back to our cocktail, the Irish Car Bomb is literally an explosive cocktail. Although it is traditionally a beer cocktail, or should we say stout, it can be switched to an Irish whisky cocktail either ways.

What you need

How to make

  • Pour the Bailey’s Irish Cream into a shot glass.
  • Add the Jameson Irish Whiskey.
  • Finally, pour your Guinness into a beer mug. Let the foam settle.
  • Drop the Bailey’s/Jameson shot glass into the Guinness.
  • Drink fast.

*It is necessary to drink it fast before otherwise it curdles rather quickly, which is just not appealing at all.

Jameson Whisky Sour

Weekends should full of fun and sweetness, but there is nothing wrong with adding a little bit of sour taste on the side. This is one classic cocktail that has remained relevant for over two decades since it was first made.
