Cocktail O’Clock: Luck of the Irish

Luck o' The Irish

It may still be February, but the warm weather we had this past weekend has me thinking spring. When I think about the start of spring I think about St. Patrick’s Day. When I think about St. Patrick’s Day I think about the genuine, authentic displays of Irish-American heritage that fill pubs throughout New York. I’m just kidding. Let’s talk about booze.

Here’s a new cocktail recipe that let’s you celebrate St. Patrick’s — or any other day — with class. No green beer, please. Instead let’s take actual Irish beer (Guinness) and use its deep, stout-y flavor to liven up a citrusy whiskey cocktail.
