Every year on March 17th, the Irish and Irish at heart come together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. What originally started as a Roman Catholic feast day to honor the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating the Irish culture. People from all over the world unite with parades, dancing, drinking, and of course, green!
Whether you plan on visiting your local Irish pub or staying at home, green and Irish traditional drinks are a must! From Guinness to Irish Whiskey and cocktails, there are plenty of options for even the choosiest of drinkers. One of our favorites is a classic Irish Martini.
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
- 1/2 ounce Irish whiskey
- Lemon twist for garnish
First, pour the Irish whiskey into a chilled cocktail glass. Swirl the whiskey around the glass to coat the inside then dump the excess whiskey. You don’t want any other flavors in your glass affecting the taste of your cocktail! Pour the vodka and dry vermouth into a cocktail shaker half-filled with cracked ice, then shake well. Strain the liquid into the rinsed glass and garnish with a lemon.
When making a drink as naked as this, it is important to use premium cocktails. The lack of juices and heavily flavored ingredients would not mask the poor quality taste of cheap liquor. Lucky for you, Payless has you covered!
