Hot Mess Cocktail

  • 10 mins
  • Serves 1
  • Easy



Belying its moniker, hot mess is a fantastic cocktail that requires neither exotic ingredients nor special know-how skills in making cocktails. What gives the cocktail its “messy” punch is Irish whiskey. The ingenious concoction of hot mess is best experienced after a hard day’s work, especially in the winter, as the cocktail surges your body with pleasant warmth and ease your mind from the day’s worries.

How to Make It

  2. Add milk, vanilla extract, and whiskey.
  3. Mix the combination and strain it into a glass and garnish with grated nutmeg, and serve on the rocks.


The first known written record of whiskey in Ireland dates to 1405 in The Irish Annals of Clomacnoise, which associates the death of a chieftain to “taking a surfeit of aqua vitae (water of life) at Christmas. Such lofty name given to distilled alcohol is not surprising, given alcohol’s pleasant effects on the mind, if taken in moderation of course.
