Thirsty Thursday: Luck of the Irish Whiskey Cocktail

Irish Whiskey Cocktail

This weekend is St. Patrick’s Day, so pour yourself a pint, adorn yourself in green and get lucky! Ahem, I mean … celebrate the “spirit” of the Emerald Isle! Put down your green beer and awaken your inner pub keeper by mixing up a cocktail worthy of a leprechaun’s approval.

Our nod to St. Patrick is a Celtic-inspired libation made with Irish whiskey, some smooth Irish cream and a touch of crème de menthe. Top with mint chocolate candy shavings for a sweet finish. With the luck of the Irish, you’ll have yourself a rich, luscious sipping cocktail this St. Paddy’s Day.

You can also partake in the festivities by polishing up on your Irish brogue and mixing a few beer-based cocktails.

Bottoms up, lads!
