The legend goes that this drink is named for “It’s a Long Road to Tipperary,” a song that was a popular anthem of Irish soldiers in World War I aching to return home to the Irish countryside. Perhaps it’s not as well-known as other classic cocktails, but the mix of Irish whiskey, herbaceous Chartreuse, sweet vermouth and just a hint of orange will have you humming after just one sip.


Simple Syrup:


  1. Chill a martini or rocks glass in the freezer.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker, pitcher or liquid measuring cup with ice. Pour in the whiskey, vermouth, Chartreuse, Simple Syrup and bitters. Stir or shake until very cold. Strain into the chilled glass. Squeeze the oils of the orange peel into the cocktail, then rub around the rim and drop into the glass. Enjoy immediately.
