Luck of the French, Italians, and Americans

On Sunday night I tried a new cocktail. It was called a Tipperary Cocktail #3. The number indicated it was the third attempt by the creator to get the ingredients in the right balance. I have no idea, however, why it was named after an Irish town.

It used American Rye Whiskey (2oz), Italian Red Vermouth (1oz), French Green Chartreuse (1/2 oz). No sign of an Irish ingredient in the mix. It was extremely tasty, without the herbs of the Chartreuse dominating, which is a danger when using that liqueur.

I wish people publishing cocktails would explain how they got to the names.
