This refreshing drink combines the flavors of citrus, mint, and whiskey for a delightful Irish-inspired beverage. Whether you're hosting a St. Patrick's Day party or simply want to enjoy a festive drink at home, the Leprechaun's Lunch is the perfect choice.

To make the Leprechaun's Lunch, start by muddling fresh mint leaves in a glass. This helps release the mint's essential oils, infusing the drink with its refreshing flavor. Next, add a generous squeeze of fresh lime juice and a splash of simple syrup. Simple syrup is made by combining equal parts sugar and water, heated until the sugar dissolves.

Now it's time for the star of the show - whiskey! Choose your favorite Irish whiskey and pour it over the muddled mint and lime mixture. Stir well to combine, ensuring that all the flavors are evenly distributed throughout the drink. Top off the glass with a handful of crushed ice, which helps keep the cocktail cool and refreshing.

For the finishing touch, garnish your Leprechaun's Lunch with a sprig of fresh mint and a slice of lime. Not only do these add a beautiful pop of color to the drink, but they also enhance the cocktail's aroma and flavor. Serve immediately and enjoy!
