Named after Grace’s brother-in-law and close ally, this cocktail is a “cold version of an Irish Coffee,” explains Danny McDonald. Created by Pam Wiznitzer, the drink combines cold coffee with Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, Galliano Ristretto, cinnamon simple syrup, and Angostura bitters.
"This is somewhat of a play on an Old Fashioned, it follows that structure,” says Jane Elkins of this nightcap-style cocktail created by Lucinda Sterling. Named after the location of Grace’s Clew Bay headquarters (and her purported final resting place), this spirit-forward cocktail mixes Santa Teresa '1796' Solera-aged rum with Punt y Mes, Merlet pear liqueur, and a couple dashes of Brooklyn Bitters’ black mission fig bitters.
This gin drink was inspired by the location of Grace’s meeting with Queen Elizabeth I. “It’s a take on a Last Word—sour, strong, sweet,” says Jane Elkins. Here, creator Ivy Mix shakes Beefeater 24 gin with Green Chartreuse, lime juice, pineapple juice, simple syrup, and fresh sage leaves.
"This is one of those drinks where you have a few different components that come together to make a totally new and different flavor," says Jane Elkins of her original creation. A reference to the town where Grace’s family castle is located, this play on a classic brings together "darker-toned" Bushmills Black Bush Irish whiskey, Cocchi di Torino sweet vermouth, Demerara simple syrup, a whole egg, and “bright, high-acid” ruby port. “I consider this a more lush, dessert-replacement kind of cocktail—but it's still not at all cloying," explains Elkins.
The Granny O’Malley
The sherry base of this play on a classic cobbler is a “tribute to Grace's Spanish reach—her affiliations and trade there,” says Danny McDonald. Created by bartender Lynn House, it is a “lighter-style cocktail, including fortified wine, a little sparkling, and a fruit component,” explains Elkins. The fortified wine in this case is nutty Oloroso sherry, which is shaken with a combination of PAMA pomegranate liqueur, Cava, simple syrup, and a slice each of lemon and orange.
