An Irish Whip is a very interesting blend of flavors. Vodka and Cuban rum (like Bacardi or Havana Club) make a nice spirit base and the anise liqueur (such as Pernod) along with orange juice add the main flavors. There is a little help from the crème de menthe in the Irish Whip to give it the St. Patrick's Day feel by adding a green color. It is not one of my favorite cocktails but it is worth checking out.
- Pour the vodka, Pernod, rum and crème de menthe into a pint glass with ice cubes.
- Fill with equal parts of 7-up and orange juice.
- Stir well.
