MxMo CXVI: Irish Wake // Death in the North Atlanitc

Is it really the last Mixology Monday ever? That's so sad. I first came across the blog in early 2013 and have participated a handful of times over the past two years (although I've missed out on every event since august). The final theme is Irish Wake and Frederic of the Cocktail Virgin Slut blog is hosting the funeral. Head over to his announcement post  to see what this means.

I don't drink Irish whiskey very much, but I do keep a bottle of Jameson around for the occasional Irish Coffee, which is like Sweden's unofficial national drink (Baileys-free). It's a great winter warmer, but not exactly MxMo material, so for this event I put my Jameson in a tiki context instead.
Although the name is a paraphrase of Death in the South Pacific, the drink is an Irish spin on Don the Beachcomber's Nui Nui. Death in the North Atlantic offers big notes of orange and vanilla along with the rich brown sugar sweetness and just a tingle of allspice.
So I guess that's it then? Thank you all MxMo hosts and participants for challenges and inspiration. It's been lots of fun. And thank you Frederic Yarm for keeping the monthly online cocktail party alive up till now.
Cheers everyone!
