Drink something other than green beer for St. Patrick’s Day

I’ve sipped on enough green beer (read: two) to make the St. Patrick’s Day special pretty unappealing to me.

If you agree, check out the following St. Patrick’s Day themed cocktail — and a nonalcoholic smoothie — recipes.

Flipin’ Lucky

Recipe from Caledonia Spirits’ Barr Hill Gin

Note: A Flip is a cocktail that uses a whole egg.

  • 1½ ounces Tom Cat Gin
  • 3 ounces Irish Stout
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 ounce raw honey syrup
  • An orange wheel (aka. orange sunshine)

1. Pour Irish Stout into the bottom of a cocktail glass.

2. In a shaker tin with ice, combine the Tom Cat Gin, egg, raw honey syrup and orange. Shake then double strain into the glass.
