endor porg

1 1/2 oz Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey
2 oz Pineapple Juice
3/4 oz Martini Bitter
1/2 oz St. Germain
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with Angostura Bitters (added after the photo was taken).
Two Wednesdays ago, I spotted an interesting Star Wars-themed Jungle Bird riff called the Endor Porg created by Backbar alumni Matt Conner. Matt is now Boston's Teeling Irish Whiskey brand ambassador, and I was excited to give this one a try given the previous successes with Irish whiskey Tiki such as the Birdman, Irish Magic, and Death in the North Atlantic. Once prepared, the Endor Porg flapped in with bitter orange, pineapple, and clove aromas. Next, a creamy lime and pineapple sip gave way to a whiskey, pineapple and bitter swallow with a peachy tangerine finish.
