master chief

2 oz Irish Whiskey (Teeling Small Batch)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Strega
1/2 oz Orgeat

Shake with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with ice, and garnish with mint sprigs.
Two Wednesdays ago, I returned to the online flashcard set for Raised by Wolves in San Diego to make one of the orgeat recipes with my new batch. The one I picked was the Master Chief as an Irish whiskey-Strega Mai Tai of sorts, and I was able to confirm that it was served at the bar by a guest's Instagram post. It also follows the Birdman by Erick Castro who co-owns the bar where Erick modified Don the Beachcomber's Q.B. Cooler to be an Irish whiskey Tiki drink. In the glass, the Master Chief emitted a mint and nutty bouquet. Next, a creamy lemon sip flowed into whiskey, star anise, almond, and vanilla flavors on the swallow.
