Sláinte! 10 St. Patrick's Day Cocktail Recipes

🍀 O'Donnell. Farrell. MacGruber. 🍀

Okay, not so sure about the third guy, but the first two are definitely Irish men. And I bet you these studs from the Emerald Isle are going to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with some Guinness (or a least a green beer). Drink like Chris, or Colin, or MacGruber (side note: just discovered that MacGruber is actually his first name and his last name is ironically...McGyver). So raise a glass to the land o' the Irish and create one of these fine cocktail recipes. Because it's definitely better to make an Irish exit when you're already home. #eringobragh 🍻
