Irish Kitchen Cocktails

60 Drinks You Can Make at Home with Everyday Equipment

In Irish Kitchen Cocktails, industry pro Oisín Davis shows you how easy it is to make cocktails with Irish spirits using everyday kitchen equipment.

Do you have a spoon and a large bowl? You can stir up the perfect punch for any kind of party, like Mrs Doyle's Iced Tea. Remember that NutriBullet you bought because you wanted to go on a smoothie diet? Dust it off and you can rock out a whole heap of frozen cocktails, including a Frozen Jameson, Ginger Ale & Lime. Got a decent-sized jug and a hand blender? You can lash together amazing cocktails in minutes, such as a Wicklow Wanderer. Found yourself in a cocktail emergency? Be prepared with drinks such as the Ginger Divil.

After travelling the world spreading the word about Irish drinks, Oisín knows that Ireland is home to some of the best distilleries on the planet, and it's not just whiskey. We’re also creating incredible Irish gin, poitín, vodka, rum, liqueur, mead, vermouth and fruit distillates. In these 60 recipes, from a classic Irish coffee to a frozen poitín piña colada, Oisín is on a one-man mission to show you how to mix up whopper homegrown drinks.

    About the author

    Oisín Davis is a self-confessed wizened old warhorse of the Irish drinks industry. His earliest work years saw him battling in the trenches of hospitality, taking on roles as varied as a dive bar doorman in San Francisco to a music promoter for clubs and venues. In 1999, he opened The Sugar Club on Dublin’s Leeson Street and worked as their general manager for 13 years. Staffing shortages there forced him to learn the craft of cocktail bartending and he quickly grew to enjoy it.

    Oisín's love for Irish spirits and cocktails led him to establish Ireland’s first dedicated drinks consultancy, Great Irish Beverages. Through this company, he has run nationwide drinks festivals and has worked all over the world educating and marketing for Jameson’s global team. He also manages publicity for some of Ireland’s most prestigious spirits and iconic whiskeys.

    Oisín has an award-winning monthly column in Food & Wine Magazine with the Business Post and is a regular radio and TV contributor. When not working, Oisín can be found taking icy dips at his beloved Forty Foot or destroying his kitchen by cooking and serving lengthy meals for his long-suffering family and friends.
