Since it's introduction at the Shannon Airport, in the late 70's this recipe has become an international favorite.
It makes a VERY satisfying drink.
How could they go wrong, using Irish whiskey!!
I cut out this recipe from a magazine in 1977.
Back then I did not save the magazine,or had the internet,so I do not know which one it was saved from.......just another one in my huge box of saved recipe's.. for the last 60 plus years!
Hope you enjoy it.....
