St. Patrick’s Day Drinks

I love St. Patrick’s day, maybe it’s because I can pass for a leprechaun in a children’s story or how for one day in the middle of a cold winter, everyone, or at least their coffee, is Irish. St. Patrick’s Day is a perfect reason to gather with friends, raise a glass of whiskey, and toast to the celebration of Irish culture. As always, we have all the proper staples – whiskies, stouts, red ales, lagers…and of course, your Irish cream liqueurs. Here are my favorite drink recommendations for St. Patrick’s Day.


Danny Boy Irish Whiskey

A classic Irish Whiskey, Danny Boy has delicious caramel and honey tones. Enjoy on the rocks or with your favorite ginger ale!

Duggan’s Irish Cream Liqueur

Perfect for cocktails with whiskey or vodka, this creamy liqueur is quite lovely on the rocks. Duggan’s also makes a great cupcake frosting for your St. Patrick’s day festivities, as well as a tasty addition to your coffee.

Newport Storm Spring Irish Red Ale

Local to Rhode Island (brewed by Newport Storm) and delicious, this red ale has a nice roasted malts and UK hops to lend a woodsy finish. Drink with your corned beef and boiled cabbage!
Slainte! (Cheers!)
