For green mixed drinks, buy a bottle of Irish wiskey and make the traditional whiskey cocktails (whiskey sours, etc...) with a drop of green food coloring. Midori Melon Liquor is green and their website has cocktail recipes, many of which are green.

Talking Irish eyes martini

There are lots of sites that come up when you google St. Patrick's drinks - the drink Irish Eyes came up on a few.

Click here for "Irish Eyes" (Irish whiskey, green creme de menthe and cream) - sounds yummy to me.

For beers - I like Guinness when I want something really stout, but in a more mellow mood I like Harp or Killian's Red. If I'm in between - I get a 'af-n-'af (half a glass of Guinness and half a glass of Harp).

For Irish whiskey - I have to remain true to the origin of my ancestors, Cork in County Cork ... so I drink Paddy's.

Jameson's Whisky. No green beer for me. A good dark beer is ok though.

I made 100s of these when I bartended.

A black and tan, isequal parts stout (Guinness or otherwise) and lighter colored ale, often a Bass Pale Ale or Harp's lager. Many an Irish barman will tell you that a layered black and tan is simply a Yank affectation and that in the homeland the two beers are simply poured together. But if you want to get all fancy, here's what you do:
  • Pour your pint half full of ale.
  • Now either slowly pour your stout in by letting it hit the side of the glass, or by letting it stream over the back of a spoon. And sure as Bob's you're uncle a proper black and tan.

Yep - know what you're talking about HB ... half-and-half is just poured together ... it's only the Brits and the "sophisticated" Yanks, and college students that thought they were sophisticated because they went to a very expensive local college (TCU), that order a black-n-tan at the little Irish pub I used to frequent some years ago.

There is no such thing as a bad Irish whiskey!

However, mixing good Irish whiskey with Vermouth? The only things you mix Irish whiskey with is a stout/lager/ale back, good friends, and good music! Okay, exceptions would be Irish Coffee - or Bailey's.

I know this is cheezy, but when I lived in CT at St. Patty's day timeframe, the local McDonald's would serve 'Shamrock Shakes', ~ mint ice cream with food coloring for their shakes. This, I might do for the family, b/c I think Bluebell ice cream has mint chocolate chip that is green ...
