First things first, we apologize for not bringing you a pumpkin martini or some other such seasonal concoction. But the Auld Irisher in Orange put something tasty in front of our face, and we couldn't resist.
The title of this week's offering is: The Luck of the Leprachaun, or LOL.
A green mixture which packs a powerful punch, it contains a litany of alcoholic ingredients comprising a veritable booze stew. A hangover won't be a problem for discretionary drinkers--just behave yourself.
The anatomy of the drink: one part vodka, rum, and gin, followed by peach schnapps, blue curacao, orange juice and Sprite or 7up. Garnish it with a Maraschino cherry and a lime and you're set. But go easy: the sugary citrus flavor is perfect for getting your girlfriend buzzed--but at the same time, your feminine side will enjoy the sweet tangy notes and easy aftertaste..
Simply put, the flavor will keep you from noticing the wealth of hard liquor mixed inside. Enjoy, and be safe.
Auld Irisher, 1547 W. Katella Ave., Orange, (714) 633-3192.
