I’ve been a fan of The Copywriter, and thankful to its creator Steven Weiss of Craftbar in NYC, since I stumbled across this refreshing little gem. After all, this tasty concoction is an easy-drinking blend of Irish whiskey, lemon, and honey syrup. What more could you ask for in a drink?

Well if you’re me…tea.

This flavor profile is just begging for one more Irish addition. Since you can almost never go wrong with a standard like Irish breakfast tea, and you’re making a honey syrup anyway, may as well go for the gusto.

This edited version has everything you could want in a whiskey cocktail.
