St. Patrick’s Day is upon us! Most of us will probably raise a glass or two, but it doesn’t have to be beer! Here are five drinks to try for St. Patty’s Day, from the traditional to the not-so-traditional! Sláinte!
Of course we have to mention this! But, you could also try...
2. Half and Half
Half Guiness, Half Harps
I'm definitely trying this delicious sounding cocktail I found on MixThatDrink!
2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce Midori
1/2 ounce Domaine De Canton Ginger Liqueur (but you can make your own! Here's a ginger liqueur recipe I found)
1/2 ounce lemon juice
Dash of Angostura bitters
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with crushed ice. Pour in all the ingredients and shake until chilled. Strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
If you’re looking to count calories on St. Patrick’s Day, this 90 calorie Mojito recipe from Shape will help you do it in a healthier way.
In the bottom of a Collins or mixing glass, muddle 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon water, herbs (1 pinch fresh ginger, peeled and grated, 3 medium basil leaves, 3 mint leaves) and juice of half a lime. Pour in 1 oz. of white rum (or vodka, if you prefer) and stir. Top with crushed ice and club soda. Garnish with a lime wheel.
5. The Dubliner
Here’s a whiskey shot called The Dubliner! This tasty recipe was on Delishably!
½ oz Jameson Irish Whisky
½ oz Irish Mist - a whiskey liqueur produced in Dublin
So, Sláinte and enjoy St. Patrick’s Day responsibly!
