A whiskey twist makes this French Onion Soup inspired recipe Irish!


8 cups chopped onions
1/4 cup salted butter
1 1/2 tbsps minced garlic
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup whiskey
8 cups beef broth
2 bay leaves
2 tsps thyme
1-2 dashes Worchestershire sauce
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Optional: Better Than Boullion Beef Base

French baguette
Mozzarella cheese (I used herb and garlic mozzarella and it was super yummy)


  1. In a large pot, over medium-high heat (if you want specifics I cooked on a 6-7) add the butter and onions, stir. Brown the onions for 30-40 minutes, stirring often. If you find that the onions are sticking too much to the bottom, add more butter or a splash or two of the beef broth.
  2. Add the garlic and flour and stir for roughly a minute.
  3. Visit Irish Onion Soup @ for full directions.
