In a new series, we’ll be sharing how our favorite bartenders in Brooklyn mix up Jameson Black Barrel in a cocktail. We’ve shown you how to remake your favorite summer cocktails with Jameson, the Irish Mule (a variation of the Moscow Mule) and the Mint Julep). Now, we’re taking Jameson on in a new cocktail that’s perfectly balanced between bitter and sweet.
Casey Lambert, bartender at Cubana Social, makes us an original recipe, called the Bitter Old Queen. In it: Jameson Black Barrel, Campari, simple syrup, lemon. That’s it! It’s a surprisingly smooth and balanced cocktail, thanks to the addition of the Campari and dash of sweetness.
