This is my favorite, go to drink. It's a variation of something I used to drink when I lived in Ireland. I know it's vain, but I named it after myself! I'm one "Happy Redhead" when I have one of these in my hand.

Not only do I love the taste of this cocktail, but I love that it is guilt free! At 78 calories for this glass, I can afford to have more than one if I want. I'm not a big drinker, so this gives me a light cocktail to have when we have guests over.  It can be made stronger, but keep in mind that Jameson's Whiskey has 69 calories per ounce. Sláinte!
