Revisit an Irish whiskey favorite.
When it comes to truly timeless cocktails, few will beat the Irish Coffee and it goes a little beyond just spiking your coffee with whiskey. To make this drink as it was meant to be, you will need brown sugar and lightly whipped cream. It is still a very easy drink to make and a perfect way to kick off St. Patrick's Day.

Easy, sprightly way to enjoy Irish whiskey.
The Irish Gold is one of the best ways to enjoy the lighter side of Irish whiskey and it is incredibly easy to mix up. Start off with a pour of Tullamore Dew and add peach schnapps and orange juice, then top it off with your favorite ginger ale. This is a great way to celebrate spring and St. Patrick's Day in one simple drink.

A perky little sipper.
Neither Irish whiskey nor Drambuie are typically associated with a sour drink, though in this Zesty Irishman the two do it together and the result is quite surprising. To create this lowball, the two dark spirits are paired with triple sec and fresh lemon then topped with just a splash of ginger ale. It is the perfect St. Patrick's Day sipper when you want something slow and smooth.
