The Best St. Patrick’s Day Cocktails

Top O’ The Mornin’ To You! Is 7 am too early for you to think of Cocktails? Well you know what they say…. It’s 5 o’clock Somewhere! Right now it’s 5 in Irish terms! It’s St. Patrick’s Day Weekend!!! Let’s start this party off right! I have three of my favorite St. Paddy’s Day Cocktail recipies for you and a round up of some of the Best of the Blogs! So about these Thin Mint and Dublin Shots…..

The Classic Flavor of St. Paddy’s Day treats is Mint.  What is the quintessential mint flavor? Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mints of course! So what could possibly be the best accompaniment to this cookie other than booze that tastes exactly like the cookie?  Hands down I bet drink about 12 of these over the weekend! So what is this wonderful Libation? Well it is equal parts Creme de Menthe and Creme de Cacao and it is chocolatey minty heaven!

Now for the Dublin Shot

Where is the most famous city in Ireland? You guessed it DUBLIN!   So how could I not do a Drink in honor of this most Irish of cities? Well I can’t. I just can’t! So here it is in all it’s Splendor.  To Make this Dublin Shot take equal parts Bailey’s Cream and Coffee flavored Brandy! These drinks can really stand on their own, but the best thing with these is when they are served together!

For my Third Lovely Treat I have the Classic Black Velvet for you

I didn’t think I was going to like this one but Oh Boy Was I Wrong! I loved it!!!! I am not a beer drinker but I do like a Stout every now and then.  So when I remembered this Drink I thought Hmmmmm Champagne and Stout? What does that taste like? Fabulous I tell you Fabulous!! The Champagne takes the bite out of the beer and mellows it perfectly.

To Make this just pour a half a glass of Stout and then top off with the Champagne.  The Champagne will kill the head so if you want the head put the Champagne in first.

Here are some others that I have made for you in the past

Guinness Stout Ice Cream Floats

And last year I made you

Irish Cream Coffee Ice Cream Floats Can you tell I like Ice Cream Floats with booze?!

Here is a round up of some of my favorites from around the Blogosphere

I hope that everyone has a Safe and Fun St. Patrick’s Day Weekend! Please Drink Responsibly and never drink and drive.  The Coolest Dude in the bar is the D. D.!
