St. Patrick's Day Drinks & Cocktails

Posted: Updated:

It's time we had a serious talk about what you'll be drinking on St. Patrick's Day. Sure, we love the novelty of green beer as much you do, but it's a bit lacking in the flavor department.

Instead, we suggest you observe the holiday with a proper cocktail that calls for Irish whiskey. The usually smooth and honeyed liquor not only tastes great neat but also works well with a range of different flavors. No wonder it's the fastest-growing spirit category in America.

So, class up your St. Patty's celebration by fixing one of these recipes, which were created by some of the world's best bartenders. Sláinte!
