The Leprechauns are here, the shamrocks are up, and everyone is dressed in green! Are you ready for this St. Patrick’s Day Celebration?
Okay, everybody, it’s time to get your Irish on. No matter where you’re from or what your nationality is, everybody is Irish on March 17th. I always enjoy St. Patrick’s Day because it’s always so much fun to hop from pub to pub while eating your favorite Irish grub of corned beef and cabbage. I love the beers and the scrumptious food, and I especially love the cocktails.
Here at Nino’s, we have a wide selection of Guinness, the most famous Irish beer of all, and it comes in all different varieties. The Guinness Blonde is a delicious Blonde American Ale, and new to Nino’s is Guinness Nitro IPA, which is smooth and creamy.
You cannot celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day without an Irish Stout, like this one from Short’s Brewing Company in Michigan.
Short’s Brewing Company Uncle Steve’s Irish Stout. Complete with a dark color and a soft head, it’s creamy and delicious!
Now it’s time to chug on the famous Irish car bomb, made by dropping a shot of Irish Cream and Irish Whiskey, like Tullamore D.E.W., into Irish Stout. Here is the run down:
Irish Car Bomb
1 Pint of Irish Stout
½ Shot of Baileys Irish Cream
½ Shot of Irish Whiskey
Add the Baileys and the whiskey to a shot glass. Pour a pint of Guinness Stout, and then drop the shot glass into the Guinness and shoot it down.
Now it’s time to wind down from a full day of celebrations. What could be more desirable than a hot cup of Irish coffee?
2 2/3 cups Hot Coffee
1 1/3 Oz. Irish Whiskey
1 tsp. Brown Sugar
2 Tbls. Fresh Cream
Pour into a glass and top with cream.
Happy Saint Patty’s Day!
