2 oz Irish Whiskey (Teeling Small Batch)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
3/4 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Falernum (Velvet)
1/2 oz Honey Syrup
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Whip shake with crushed ice, pour into a Tiki mug, and fill with crushed ice. Garnish with a mint sprig (paper umbrella).
Two Fridays ago, I spotted a drink on Bartender at Large's Instagram for Erick Castro's Birdman as a riff on Don the Beachcomber's Q.B. Cooler. With Irish whiskey as the base spirit, it made for a great hat trick of Irish Tiki for January's Tiki the Snow Away along with the Death in the North Atlantic and the Irish Magic. The Birdman began with a citrus, honey, and clove aroma since I lacked a mint sprig as garnish. Next, lime, grapefruit, and honey mingled on the sip, and the swallow flew in with whiskey, honey, ginger, and clove flavors.
