We were all celebrating St. Patrick’s Day a little differently this year. Pam Brandon recently had this bright cocktail, called P.J.’s Poison, at Raglan Road Irish Restaurant & Pub in Disney Springs, and we thought it might be the perfect antidote to today’s headlines.
Like so many of us, Pam, pictured here with Raglan Road owner John Cooke, is a fan of John’s and co-owner Paul Nolen, who keep all the cocktails true to the Irish spirit.
1 muddled orange segment
2 oz. Gunpowder Irish Gin
1 tablespoon Irish Whiskey Marmalade
5 to 6 drops Rhubarb Bitters
1 oz. Lemon Sour
3 oz. Fever Tree Tonic Water
Garnish: orange peel twist
Muddle Orange and then add Gin, Marmalade, Rhubarb Bitters and Lemon Sour to shaker. Fill with ice and shake. Strain over fresh ice in a glass. Fill glass with Fever Tree tonic water. Garnish, if desired.
If you can’t find Irish Whiskey Marmalade, just use orange marmalade and add a dash of Irish Whiskey. Slainte!
Raglan Road Pub & Restaurant serves Irish cuisine with a modern twist and entertains guests with nightly shows year-round, featuring Irish bands and dancers. For more information, visit the website or call 407-938-0300.
Pam is the author of a dozen books for Disney Publishing and the managing editor of Edible Orlando magazine.
We would like to thank Pam and Raglan Road for allowing us to share the recipe with our readers, and we wish all a happy and healthy St. Patrick’s Day. Raglan Road Irish Restaurant & Pub will be closing temporarily as of midnight today. We wish John and Paul, and their entire team, all the best. Stay healthy, everyone.
