Put down the green beer and step away from the bar…
These Irish spirit-based cocktails are a far tastier alternative for the Irish (and Irish-at-heart) to mix up at home this St Patrick’s day.
It’s a patron saint day synonymous with celebration.
And celebration is synonymous with a ‘special’ drink or two...
So whilst Guinness is great, sure, we’d argue an Irish cocktail is a far more fitting tipple to get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit on Thursday, March 17th.
ST PATRICK’S DAY COCKTAILS
We’re not knocking green cocktails – Mojitos, Appletinis, even a Death in the Afternoon has its time and place – we just feel that Saint Patrick is more deserving of a slightly ‘classier’ tipple. A whiskey based long drink with a twist, or a creamy cup with a coffee kick, sure beats the headache-inducing green concoctions proffered by many as a worthy St. Patrick’s day cocktail.
THE DUBLINER TREACLE
Old Fashioned in style, with an apple twist: Add The Dubliner Whiskey and other ingredients to a Rocks glass, over ice, and stir.
THE BEES' KNEES
50 ml The Dubliner Honeycomb Whiskey Liqueur |
20ml Honey Syrup | 20ml Fresh Lemon Juice
Like a boozy Crunchie in a bottle, shake The Dubliner Honeycomb Whiskey Liqueur with honey, lemon juice & ice. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with lemon zest.
THE DEVIL'S SMASH COCKTAIL
Muddle Dublin Liberties Oak Devil Whiskey with the other ingredients into a Collins Glass, fill up with crushed ice and garnish with mint.
50ml Feeney’s Irish Cream Liqueur |
25ml Espresso Coffee | 25ml Premium Vodka |
Using a cocktail shaker, shake Feeney's Irish Cream Liqueur with the other and ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with three coffee beans.
So purchase one of our fine bottles of Irish spirits, mix up one of the above, and on 17 March toast to good times and good fortune with a damn good drink:
