Our peripatetic friend, whose name we have stamped on this drink, has Irish roots. That took care of finding a base spirit. As she often travels long distances by air this was designed as her jet lag antidote.
1 1/2 ounces Irish whiskey
3 ripe strawberries
1/4 ounce maraschino liqueur
1/4 ounce simple syrup
Muddle two strawberries, maraschino liqueur and simple syrup in a mixing glass. Add the whiskey and several ice cubes. Stir until combined and thoroughly chilled. Strain over ice into an old-fashioned glass. Garnish with the third strawberry.
