Drink like the Irish (kind of)

Just because green beer has become the cheap go-to for St. Patty’s drinks doesn't mean you have to lower your standards. Here are a few Irish-inspired drink suggestions that are perfect for March 17.
1. A pint of Guinness. This is a classic, really.
2 Irish Cactus. If you love St. Patty’s Day but don’t want to give up your tequila, this one’s for you. Mix 2 oz. of Irish cream liqueur and 1 oz. white tequila over ice.
3. Irish Blond. Mix 2 oz. Michael Collins Irish Whiskey, 3/4 oz. orange curacao, 1/2 oz. of Fino sherry and 1 dash of orange bitters to a glass. Add ice, stir to chill and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a flamed orange peel expressed over the cocktail.
