St.Patricks Day Cocktail Ideas

We live in a University (and College) town.  St.Patrick’s Day celebrations among the students are all about green beer, green t-shirts, green top hats, green everything!  Let’s just say they are not exactly refined celebrations! It isn’t uncommon for them to gather by the thousands to “celebrate”.  

Irish Whiskey Cocktail

I can’t say I have ever celebrated St.Patrick’s Day the way they do, but as I have gotten older St.Patrick’s day has gotten quieter and far more low key! If you are looking for St.Patrick’s day cocktail ideas that involve more than green beer, look no further!

For myself, cocktails (and alcohol of any kind for that matter) is reserved for holidays and special occasions.  I have to admit this cocktail made with Irish whiskey, vodka and maple syrup was delicious.
