Festive and Boozy Beverages for St. Patrick's Day

You don't need to plan a legendary pub crawl, as many will be doing on St. Patrick's Day, to drink spectacularly. Make your own whiskey cocktails and fun green drinks like these and you can have a dazzingly good holiday right at home.  Even the drinks that don't inebriate you will fill you with whimsy and nostalgia because of their sweet Irish charm and simplicity. Entertain all your friends (and whip up non-alcoholic versions for kids) with these fabulous drinks, and have a happy St. Patty's Day!
