Green Beer - Green Beer is the most popular drink for St. Patrick's Day and for good reason, it's just fun to drink a green beer.
Although most people make green beer by adding food coloring, you can also make green beer by adding the liqueur Blue Curacuo as well. Here are the instructions:
To start with, get a frosty cold beer mug from the freezer.
Next, place a few drops of green food coloring in the bottom prior to the beer. Here is where you could use Blue Curacuo instead if you prefer.
Finally, Pour in a very light colored beer so the green color can be seen. Toast your friends and family and enjoy! Check out these Irish toasts and blessings!
Irish Coffee - Sometimes just coffee alone will not do the trick. So, do as the Irish do and add some good old fashioned Irish whiskey to the mix. A longtime favorite of Irish pubs! Just get the best Irish whiskey, some good coffee and a little fresh whipped cream.
2 1/2 oz strong, hot coffee
1 1/2 oz Irish whiskey
1 tsp brown sugar or sugar cubes
1 oz whipping cream
Pour the coffee, Irish whiskey and sugar into an Irish coffee glass or mug. Stir well. Top off with some sweet whip cream.
