Fat Frog

Here's a fun one. You can make these with a few of your friends in no time. This cocktail turns a nice green color once you've mixed everything together, perfect for being festive during St. Patty's Day. All you'll need are these three ingredients.

  • bottle of Smirnoff Ice
  • bottle of Bacardi Breezer Orange
  • bottle of Wicked (WKD) Blue Vodka

Mix each ingredient evenly into a glass and serve. Roughly 1.5 - 2 oz each.

Irish Coffee

Irish Coffee was originally claimed by Joe Sheridan. At the time he was a chef in Foynes, County Limerick, located in mid-west Ireland. A few Americans came into the establishment in which he was working and ordered coffee. Joe decided to add whiskey to their coffee. The Americans asked if the coffee was Brazilian and James told them it was "Irish Coffee". Add a little cream and sugar and you've got the recipe used today.

  • 2 oz Irish Whiskey
  • 4 oz hot coffee
  • 1 oz cream
  • 1 tsp brown sugar

Dublin Dream

Have you ever dreamed of traveling to Dublin? Well if you drink enough of these this St. Patrick's Day you may be able to take an overnight trip and be back by morning with a pounding headache. Here's your ticket to living the Dublin Dream.

  • 1 1/2 oz Skyy Vodka
  • 1 1/2 oz Irish mist whiskey
  • 1 1/2 oz Irish cream
  • 1 oz Chambord liquor
  • 1 oz fresh cream

Guinness

In 1759 founder Arthur Guinness signed a 9,000-year lease in Dublin, Ireland to begin the brewery that would create this stout beer. This beer has a distinct coffee smell to it with a malty and bitter sweet taste. Holding a steady 4.2% alcohol level this dark colored beer will get you there but will be a little lighter compared to other dark beers. Be festive and grab yourself a Guinness.
