When I was in university, it was quite customary to spend your St. Patrick’s Day “enjoying” green beer and a copious amount of shots with friends until the wee hours of the morning. Ah, those were the days… well, not really. No one really enjoyed the morning after and usually, we were all writing exams and final essays and completely miserable. I suppose the way we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day now might be a slightly classier affair. Let’s take a peek at some St. Patrick’s Day cocktails, shots, and beverages that our grown-up selves might appreciate a little more. I’ll pass on the green beer if you don’t mind!
