Grownup Irish drinks for St. Patrick's Day

[caption id="attachment_1638" align="aligncenter" width="267" caption="Irish Coffee"] Irish Coffee[/caption] Buckets of green beer are for the young and foolhardy. St. Patrick's Day deserves a grownup Irish drink made with Irish whiskey, or Bailey's, or Irish Mist, splashed over ice into Waterford crystal glasses, or warmed in sugar-rimmed coffee mugs. Yum. A more civilized elixir could still result in table-slamming rounds of Wild Rover after someone busts out the spoons and everyone remembers how to do the jig, with a tear shed for the long-ago famine-afflicted souls of " County-Mayo-God-help-us", but this part is entirely up to you. Irish cocktail lore Our friends from ThatstheSpirit.com have the best info on Irish drinks: Irish cocktail recipes from ThatstheSpirit.com:
  • Irish Shillelagh - nice and fruity, possibly packs an unassuming whollop like a real shillelagh;
  • Irish Buck - Whiskey. ginger-ale. lemon peel. Buck!;
  • Irish Rainbow -  you might have to kick away a few roving leprechauns;
  • and more! - "tu-ra-lu-ra-lur-a...."
This Thursday I intend to make this tasty  Irish Soda Bread, slathered with as much Kerrygold Butter as I please, a healthy dram of Jameson's on ice, and one clapping round of Whiskey in the Jar. Maybe two.  Sláinte! What are you doing for St. Patrick's Day?
