11 St Patrick’s Day Cocktails

March 10, 2017

At GoHen we love St Patrick’s Day, ok, hands up, we love any day that has a party attached. Add some cocktails, leprechaun’s and men talking in gorgeous Irish accents (sigh) and we’re there!

If you’re planning a St Paddy’s Day shindig then here are some fab cocktails to get you River dancing like Michael Flatley.

Please note; ‘pt’ or ‘pts’ means ‘parts’ and not pints.

Baby Guinness

• 3 pts Tia Maria
• 1 pt Bailey’s Irish Cream

Pour the Tia Maria into a shot glass, now comes the delicate bit. Slowly pour the Bailey’s off the back of a teaspoon so it gently layers on top of the Tia Maria so it looks like a mini Guinness.

Black Velvet

• 1 pt Guinness
• 1 pt Champagne

Pour into a champagne flute and serve while river dancing.

Irish Catholic

• 1 pt Bailey’s
• 1 pt Sambuca

Pour both measures over ice, drink while listening to The Corrs.

Depth Charge

• 1 pint of Guinness
• 1 shot of Drambuie

Drop a shot glass of Drambuie into the Guinness. Let it sink and then sup!

Guinness & Black

• 6 pts Guinness
• 1 pt Ribena

It’s just like mixing a regular glass of Ribena but substitute water for Guinness. You can moderate the amount of Ribena to suit your taste.

Irish Slop Tray

• 1 pt gin
• 1 pt rum
• 1 pt vodka
• 1 pt peach schnapps
• 1 pt triple sec
• 1 can of Red Bull

Pour all the spirits in to a glass full of ice. Add the Red Bull which will then turn the rest of the drink green. To be sure.

Irish Submarine

• 1 pt Bailey’s
• 1 pt beer

Pour the Bailey’s into a shot glass and then layer the beer on top using the back of a teaspoon to create two separate layers. Down the hatch!

Slippery Nipple

• 1 pt Bailey’s
• 1 pt butterscotch schnapps

Pour the Bailey’s into a shot glass and then layer the schnapps on top using the back of a teaspoon. Slainte!

Flaming Coconut

• 2 pts Irish whiskey
• 1 pt black vodka
• 3 pts ginger ale
• 2 pts coconut cream

Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker, add crushed ice, shake and serve. Please note, there’s no need to actually set light to anything. No matter how many Black Velvets you’ve had.

Guinness Lover

• 3 pts Guinness
• 2 pts Guinness
• 1 pt Guinness

According to our Irish friends the very best Guinness cocktail is Guinness with a shot of Guinness “It’s Guinness you heathen, it’s perfect as it is, don’t mix it with anything!”

St Paddy’s Cocktail

• 2 pts Irish Whiskey
• 1 pt sweet vermouth
• 5 dashes of Angostura Bitters

Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake, strain the drink into a chilled glass.
Please remember to always drink responsibly… Use coasters and supply nibbles.
