Pot of Gold Cocktail

Skip the green cocktails this year and embrace the gold trend by adding golden cocktails to your party menu.

I love blending Irish Whiskey cocktails this time of year; Not only are they golden in color, but they also offer a gentle heat that blends well with any number of mixers and citrus juices.

This Pot of Gold Cocktail is made all the more golden by blending ginger ale and Whiskey together, and then true to its name, accented with gold sugar glitter to give it a golden focal point. Served in a Brandy glass to offer the illusion of being a pot of gold, this crowd pleaser can be served in a large batch, or as a single cocktail.


  • 1 ounce of Whiskey
  • 4 ounces of Ginger ale
  • Orange Twist
  • Gold Sugar Glitter
  • Slice of orange

In a chilled glass, run the orange slice along the rim of the glass and then gently rim the glass with gold sugar glitter.

Add the Whiskey, and then top with the Ginger Ale.

Garnish with an orange rind twist.
