Irish Drinks, Green Drinks - St. Patricks Day Drinks!
|Shamrock Shake||Mint Flavor – drive through McDonald’s anytime in March or make one at home.||Simply blend 2 large scoops of ice cream, 1 cup of milk, 4 drops of green food coloring and 1/4 tsp of Mint extract for every large size milkshake you desire.|
|Green Beer||Beer – a true pub classic||To make one at home, just add 1-2 drops of green food coloring into a mug and then pour in your beer. This actually works best for a pitcher – add 6-8 drops of green food coloring into a pitcher and then fill with your favorite beer. Serve chilled.|
|Irish Mint||Mint – this may not sound very good, but you just might find it quite soothing.||To make an Irish Mint just fill a glass with ice cubes then add 2 shots of Baileys Irish Cream Liquor, 1 shot Creme de Menthe and 3 shots of Milk.|
|Creme De Menthe||An after dinner drink – mint has always been a soothing digestive.||Drink it straight up or on the rocks. Try adding a little half and half or a splash of fresh cream to the top of the liquor for a thick, creamy and less potent shot.|
|Irish Coffee||Hot coffee with added whiskey heat & creamy goodness.||St. Patrick’s Day is a perfect day to add Baileys Irish Cream to your coffee, along with a squirt of whipped cream for good measure. That’s the oversimplified recipe, check here for instructions to make the real deal.|
|Irish Car Bomb||This drink is serious, although it tastes rather innocent (like chocolate). Be careful, it must be chugged as soon as assembled or the cream will curdle.||1/2 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream,
1/2 oz. Irish whiskey,
1/2 pint of Guinness beer.
Pour the Guinness into a sturdy highball glass. Pour the Bailey’s and whiskey into the same shot glass. Drop the shot into the Guinness and chug!
1 oz. Creme de Menthe, 1 ounce of Green Curacao,
1 oz. Bailey’s Cream,
1 oz. Grand Marnier
Pour the ingredients, in order listed, slowly into a small glass. Pour the second 2 liquids slowly over the back of a spoon which you’ve angled over the glass in order to keep the new layer from penetrating the lower layers.
|TY-KU||Citrus flavor. Actually a low calorie Asian liquor – but it’s green!||A beautiful display of green drinks & recipes are shown on the Ty-Ku website.|
