Drinky Drink: St. Patrick's Day Edition

1. The Irish Coffee

For those of you who might be thirsty this St. Patrick’s Day and want something with a little more kick than a Shamrock Shake, FM presents three essential cocktails for the occasion:

1.  The Irish Coffee


St. Patrick’s Day is a marathon, not a sprint, and this suggestion is subtle enough not to draw dirty looks at breakfast. It’s the best part of waking up!

2 1/2 oz strong, hot coffee

1 1/2 oz Irish whiskey

1 tsp sugar

1 oz whipping cream

2.  The Green Monster


Drink up, whether you’re going to be surrounded by people who still think St. Patrick’s Day is all about the color green or you want a beverage that’s sure to draw a curious glance.

1 ½ oz Blue Curaçao

Stir and fill with orange juice until you like the shade of green

3.  The Irish Car Bomb


This one will leave you wondering what the hell happened last night (since that’s what St. Patrick’s Day is really about).

12 oz Guinness stout

1/2 shot Bailey’s Irish cream

1/2 shot Jameson Irish whiskey
