Cocktails of the Month: St. Patrick's Day Cocktails

Since it's St Patrick's Day, it’s worth thinking about what you’ll be drizzling down ye gullet.  Who wants to spend another night kicking back plastic cups full o’ green beer?  Flex some cultural muscle with these simple holiday cocktails that will keep those Irish and non-Irish eyes smiling:

Everybody’s Irish

 2 oz Irish whiskey
1 tsp green crème de menthe
1 tsp Green Chartreuse®
1 green olive

Stir all ingredients (except green olive) with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Add the green olive and serve.

Irish Martini

3 oz vodka
0.5 oz dry vermouth
0.5 oz Irish whiskey
1 Lemon twist

Pour the Irish whiskey into a chilled cocktail glass, and swirl around the glass until the inside is coated. Drain the excess whiskey. Combine the vodka and vermouth in a shake half filled with cracked ice, and shake well. Strain into the cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.

But before you press the glass to your lips, remember the old Irish toast:

“Saint Patrick was a gentleman, who through strategy and stealth,
Drove all the snakes from Ireland, here’s a toasting to his health.
But not too many toastings, lest you lose yourself and then,
Forget the good Saint Patrick, and see all those snakes again.”

Cheers.
