While scrolling through my Twitter feed a day before St. Patrick’s Day, this post from Food & Wine, (which originally appeared on Liquor.com) caught my eye. You see, over the last few weeks, I’ve been trying to come up with a post about my favorite “holiday”. My ancestry is a hodge-podge of a bunch of Western European countries, primarily consisting of German, Irish, and English. I’m so white, I’m damn near transparent, so every year I get to celebrate with my pasty ancestral cousins (and all the pasty Chicagoans) and tip one back for good ol’ St. Patrick.
I’m far from a teetotaler, and one of my personal favorite spirits is Irish whiskey (though it’s second only to some good old American bourbon). Irish whiskey hits the palate like a soft Irish lass; sweet and mild, but with enough kick to make it interesting. These cocktails are bound to put a smile on your face and have most certainly put me in the mood for some quality time with my liquor cabinet.
