The Southern Ireland cocktail has nothing to do with the southern part of Ireland. The name instead comes from the fact that it’s a mixture of Southern Comfort peach liqueur with Baileys Irish cream.
The first flavor to hit you is that of whiskey, but it’s followed quickly by a hint of peaches and cream, and the peach is what lingers. It’s the rich heavy sweetness of the Irish cream uplifted by the peach from the Southern Comfort.
- 1 ounce Baileys Irish cream
