With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner we’ve been thinking about the luck of the Irish and how we are going to celebrate one of the best and booziest holidays of the year. To properly narrow down our choices we sat down to a good old fashioned brainstorm, which looked a little something like this:

Leprechauns

Lucky charms

Shamrocks

Green

Beer

Green beer!

Whiskey

Shots of whiskey followed by green beer!

Obviously our brainstorm led us down a path that needs no further explanation…

So we came to this logical conclusion: our St. Patty’s celebrations will begin with three drinks inspired by this fabulous day of parties, drinks, lots of green, and a little bit o’ luck. Cheers!

3 St. Patricks day cocktails

Looking for a tasty snack to soak up the booze? Stay tuned for our corned beef sliders, stuffed baby potatoes and luck o’ the Irish sweets. Coming soon!

Kiss me I'm Irish Champagne Cocktail

Kiss me I’m Irish Champagne Cocktail 
For those who want a little action on this March 17th.

4 ounces champagne or sparkling wine
1/4 ounce creme de menthe liquor

Pour champagne into glass. Add creme de menth & pucker up! This spirited champagne treat will bring you luck and leave your mouth minty fresh.

Black and Tan Shooters

Black and Tan Shooters
This is a simple one, an homage to the larger black and tan and the perfect compliment to our upcoming corned beef sliders.

2 ounces lager beer, preferably a lager such as Bass Lager
2 ounces Guinness

Add lager to a 4 ounce glass. Place an upside-down spoon over the mouth of the glass, and pour Guinness over h top of the spoon. This prevents the Guinness from mixing with the lager and causes it to rest on top.

Irish Eyes Whiskey Cocktail

Irish Eyes Whiskey Cocktail
The Irish cousin of the White Russian.

1 ounce Irish whiskey
2 ounces cream
1/4 ounce creme de menthe liquor

Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake well and pour over ice for a smooth Irish cocktail.

 

Cheers!
