If you replace the brandy in a champagne cocktail with Scotch whisky, you make a Scotch Royale. If you replace the scotch with Irish whiskey, that makes it Irish Royale. Slainte.
Place a sugar cube in the bottom of a champagne flute and douse it with a good couple of dashes of Angostura bitters. Add 45ml Jameson’s Irish whiskey, and top it up with cold, cold champagne. Some people chill the whisky by stirring it in a mixing glass over ice before they strain it into the flute. This takes a little edge of its alcohol. So, really, it’s up to you.

Interesting, isn’t it—a cocktail that is named after a legendary detective fiction writer?
