If you enjoy Manhattans and are open to Irish whiskey and the herbal beauty of Chartreuse, give this a shot. You just might discover a new favourite!

The first known printed Tipperary recipe appears as an equal-parts (1:1:1) formula (sans bitters) in Hugo R. Ensslin's 1916 Recipes for Mixed Drinks. It later shows up in Harry MacEllhone's ABC of Mixing Cocktails; this time, the recipe stipulates 1/2 oz less Chartreuse, 1 oz vermouth, and a full 2 oz measure of Irish whiskey, and no bitters. By 1930, in The Savoy Cocktail Book, Craddock calls for equal parts and lists the Tipperary along with a wildly different drink of the same (?). We prefer a drier drink, with the Irish whiskey front-and-centre, so we adapted our recipe from that of MacElone's.
