5 St. Patrick’s Day Drinks Every Self-Respecting Irish Person Needs to Try

To truly embrace the Irish spirit this St. Patrick’s Day, you should try Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey, crafted with care in the oldest licensed distillery on the Emerald Isle. Kilbeggan is the perfect choice for a variety of Irish cocktails. If there’s a chill in the air on St. Paddy’s Day, improve your cup of Joe by making it a Kilbeggan Irish Coffee. Don’t forget the whipped cream. To please a crowd, make a batch of Brosna Sours, a refreshing combination of citrus and whiskey, named for the River Brosna, which still powers the mill at the Kilbeggan Distillery. To impress those guests who have tried everything, pique their curiosity with The Wheel, made with a wisp of absinthe. For a new take on a classic cocktail, select a Kilbeggan Single Pot Still Old Fashioned, ideal for evening sipping.
