St. Patricks Day Cocktail – The Leprechaun’s Blarney
Our friendly resident bartender Groover is at it again. We asked him to create a St. Patrick Day Cocktail recipe for us to share with our readers – he did not disappoint.
Groover notes that “It was hard to find a starting point because there are already so many green varieties of drink available. I decided to take a different approach and look at the most popular Irish beverages including the usual suspects such as Bailey’s, Guiness, Tea, Cider and Jameson. I wanted to find a golden combination between some of these and through proper testing eventually come to a right combination. The Irish love Whiskey, Cider and Tea which together also make for a great cocktail.”
The cocktail was named for the magical Leprechaun and the charming, pleasant flattery known as Blarney. You might expect that a Leprechaun would certainly be expert with such speech. The drink too is a charmer – light on the palate, very refreshing and deliciously drinkable.
We are proud to present this new St. Patrick’s Day Cocktail. The very refreshing, the very delicious, the very charming – The Leprechaun’s Blarney! Enjoy!
