For St. Patrick’s Day, many celebrants seek to “drink green,” in the form of green-colored cocktails or green-colored beer.

Most green beer: Meh.

Appletinis and drinks made green with Midori melon liqueur: not exactly Irish.

We have another suggestion:

Add an Irish liquors, such as Irish cream liqueur or Irish whiskey, to your drink of choice.

The whiskey can be added to almost any beverage:

  • Apple cider
  • Boilermaker
  • Coffee (hot, iced, Irish)
  • Juice
  • Hot Toddy
  • Soft drinks
  • Sparkling water
  • Tea (hot or iced)
  •  
    Cream liqueur like Bailey’s works with anything milk-related:

  • Coffee (hot or iced)
  • Creamy cocktails (add some to a Brandy Alexander, Grasshopper, Mudslide, White Russian, etc.)
  • Hot Chocolate
  • Milk, cold or hot
  • Shakes, floats, malts, egg creams, etc.
  • Tea (hot or iced)
  •  
    The traditional Irish toast is Sláinte, pronounced SLON-chuh, the Gaelic word for health.

    And now, you have a nice selection with which to toast!
