IRISH SLAMMER

It would be an absolute shame if we started with anything other than an Irish Slammer!

Here’s what you’ll need:

½ ounce of good Irish Whiskey

½ ounce of Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur

Half a glass of Guinness beer

Mix your Irish Whiskey and Baileys Irish cream. Drop it into your glass of beer and enjoy!


GREEN BEER

I couldn’t leave this one out! Green Beer is a classic! Fun Fact: 13 million pints of Guinness beer are consumed on St. Patrick’s Day each year. It’s Irish and iconic!

You’ll need:

Beer (preferably something light)

2 or 3 drops of green food coloring

Pour your beer into a glass and mix with green food coloring. That’s all there is to it!


IRISH FLAG SHOT

If you’re feeling super festive, you need to try an Irish Flag Shot!

Start with:

1 part Creme de Menthe

1 part Bailey's Irish Cream

1 part Grand Marnier

Pour your Creme de Menthe into a shot glass. Next, pour your Baileys Irish Cream in using the back of the spoon. Pour slowly to keep the two separate. Repeat this step with the Grand Marnier. Pour slowly over the back of a spoon. Then enjoy!


GREEN MIMOSA

This one is for all mimosa lovers.

You’ll need:

Orange juice

Champagne

Splash of Blue Curacao

It didn’t feel right to give you the breakdown here. Some like their mimosa with equal parts, some like it with 2 parts orange juice and four parts champagne. It’s up to you! The splash of blue curacao will give you the green effect!
