Things to Drink on St. Patrick’s Day That Aren’t Beer

If you don’t want to drink beer, here are five other St. Patrick’s Day drinks you can order or make for yourself.

  1. An Irish Mule. It’s like a Moscow Mule, but with Irish whiskey instead of vodka, and ginger ALE instead of ginger BEER.  It’s half a can of ginger ale with ice . . . whiskey . . . and a little bit of lime juice.
  1. A Pillow Mint. It’s Irish whiskey on the rocks . . . a half-ounce of Kahlua . . . and a splash of peppermint schnapps.
  1. A Misty Mint. You fill three-quarters of a glass with ice . . . add white rum . . . and crème de menthe to make it bright green.
  1. A Baby Guinness. It’s a shot made with Kahlua and Baileys, so it kind of looks like Guinness.
  1. A Black Velvet. This one actually does have some beer in it.  You fill two thirds of a glass with champagne, and then fill the rest with Guinness.  And you have to pour the Guinness in last or it won’t mix right.

Here’s to a long life and a merry one…A pretty girl and an honest one…A cold beer an another one.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
