Irish Drinks, Green Drinks - St. Patricks Day Drinks!
|Mint Flavor – drive through McDonald’s anytime in March or make one at home.
|Simply blend 2 large scoops of ice cream, 1 cup of milk, 4 drops of green food coloring and 1/4 tsp of Mint extract for every large size milkshake you desire.
|Beer – a true pub classic
|To make one at home, just add 1-2 drops of green food coloring into a mug and then pour in your beer. This actually works best for a pitcher – add 6-8 drops of green food coloring into a pitcher and then fill with your favorite beer. Serve chilled.
|Mint – this may not sound very good, but you just might find it quite soothing.
|To make an Irish Mint just fill a glass with ice cubes then add 2 shots of Baileys Irish Cream Liquor, 1 shot Creme de Menthe and 3 shots of Milk.
|Creme De Menthe
|An after dinner drink – mint has always been a soothing digestive.
|Drink it straight up or on the rocks. Try adding a little half and half or a splash of fresh cream to the top of the liquor for a thick, creamy and less potent shot.
|Hot coffee with added whiskey heat & creamy goodness.
|St. Patrick’s Day is a perfect day to add Baileys Irish Cream to your coffee, along with a squirt of whipped cream for good measure. That’s the oversimplified recipe, check here for instructions to make the real deal.
|Irish Car Bomb
|This drink is serious, although it tastes rather innocent (like chocolate). Be careful, it must be chugged as soon as assembled or the cream will curdle.
1/2 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream, 1/2 oz.
Irish whiskey, 1/2 pint of Guinness beer.
Pour the Guinness into a sturdy highball glass. Pour the Bailey’s and whiskey into the same shot glass. Drop the shot into the Guinness and chug!
1 oz. Creme de Menthe, 1 ounce of Green
Curacao, 1 oz. Bailey’s Cream, 1 oz.
Pour the ingredients, in order listed, slowly into a small glass. Pour the second 2 liquids slowly over the back of a spoon which you’ve angled over the glass in order to keep the new layer from penetrating the lower layers.
|Citrus flavor. Actually a low calorie Asian liquor – but it’s green!
