Derrick: Welcome to the Sunday night shooters edition of Common Man Cocktails. I'm your host Derrick Schommer. And today, we're creating the Irish flag out of a cocktail, awesome.
Jennifer: Are you going to saw?
Derrick: No we're not going to saw it, we don’t have any enough time for that. And we're going to do is by layering the liquids, the liquors, whatever on top of each other. It’s called Puss Caf?, that’s the style of layering. So I'm going to put it on this shot glass, I'm just chilling it up a little bit. Because, why not? Right? We’re going to be using to make this, you're going to need a green, you're going to need kind of a white, and a yellow. And you also have to make sure that the densities work that they're going to sit on top of each other. And this happen, I didn’t make the recipe up.
This is from Laermer or Lerma, I'm going to go with Lerma. And I'm going to layer it, I'm going to start with the cr?me de menthe. So you're going to get the minty fresh feeling. You're going to then go to an Irish cream, I'm using the Irish Manor Legendary Irish Cream Liquor. This was also in our Alcohol’s By Volume tasting in it. Also did fairly well, if not second or third. I think Ryan’s did the best.
Was Ryan’s the best? Ryan’s, if you could find Ryan’s. I also find out through some research that the importers are the same one that does Bailey’s. Connecticut I think. Something like that. So importer, yeah, whatever.
So what we're going to do is layer them and see where it will go. And to start, the key here is if you can get them kind of equally distributed. But the fact of the matter is this, cr?me de menthe, and especially in this class, looks like it feels more. So I'm using a little less cr?me de menthe. And not necessarily is not always a bad thing, because too much cr?me de menthe can hurt your soul. And I’ll do, much as I feel like doing of the Irish cream. It should be almost fill this. That should do it, there. Because you want to make a nice distribution.
This is the hardest one, this is where things kind of get sketchy. Because, Grand Marnier will layer, but it’s kind of messy. So it might not be perfect. But I'm okay with not being perfect just for today. Now, if I don’t screw it up and pull this out without messing it up too bad. What you have is an Irish flag. And you’ll see there's a little fogginess. Are you seeing that? Does that look awesome to you? There's a little fogginess in the yellow.
So, you can try and get around that. It’s pretty difficult. You have to pour extremely slow, and I don’t want to bore you to death. But it didn’t come out too bad, huh? But you get the idea either way.
And I was told it taste a little weird. And that’s how you like it.
Jennifer: Taste like mint.
Derrick: Taste like mint?
Yeah, that’s because it goes on last. And it’s too potent. I think there's almost a coating of the Grand Marnier, but you could taste the creaminess too. It’s almost like a cream a mint Irish cream. I'm thinking Grand Marnier, this is a very expensive way to use Grand Marnier. Because you're not really going to get too much. Because it’s the first thing that enters your mouth. And it doesn’t really get the sweet taste bud or anything. Kind of almost goes right down. And that mint comes in last and it tickles all the way around your mouth and boom, you get yourself a minty, creamy drink. Which is not necessarily bad.
I don’t think it really taste weird. It tastes like these components, which would be good with coffee. Would be good with coffee.
So there you go, that is the Irish flag for those that are ready to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Layer those up. Serve them to your guests. And just blind them up on the table and they’ll come over and go, you my friend are awesome. That’s what we're going for here on the show.
