Lucky Clover — AKB at Archer Hotel Burlington 12 Months of Cocktails: March

Sláinte A wicked-good celebration

Mention the Boston area and you’ll be hard-pressed to not think of Ireland — the region proudly claims one of the largest Irish populations outside of the Emerald Isle.

In 1737, Boston’s community was the first in North America to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. And the festive tradition continues on an ever-growing scale, complete with parades, parties and pubs, plus copious amounts of green everything, good luck charms and inventive cocktails.

The inspiration Classic whiskey concoctions

Just up the road from Boston Proper, AKB at Archer Hotel Burlington tapped Paige D’Agostino, lead bartender, to create an Irish-inspired cocktail for its beverage-forward celebration, 12 Months of Cocktails. She began with Tullamore Dew — the official Irish whiskey of the Boston Red Sox.

Drawing inspiration from the Sazerac, an anise-flavored classic cocktail hearkening back to the 1850s, as well as the newer-classic Penicillin (a 2005 creation), she included the ginger-forward Domaine de Canton. Adding an herbal honey syrup plus cucumber, lemon and egg white, D’Agostino finished with a matcha-absinthe spritz.
