Drink of the Day: Lucky Irishman

Cocktail BarSt. Patrick’s Day is typically celebrated with traditional Irish fare like corned beef and cabbage, and topped off with many pints of (oftentimes green) beer. At Celebrity Cruises, we’re joining in on the fun by hosting a series of beer seminars and tastings, as well mixing a simple shaken-not-stirred tribute to the holiday: The Lucky Irishman.

The Lucky Irishman

Ingredients

1 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
1/2 oz Bushmills Irish Whiskey

Method

Fill cocktail shaker with ice.

Pour ingredients into shaker and mix.

Pour into a short tumbler over ice and serve.

Variations on a Theme…

If Bailey’s is your drink, the spirits manufacturer also recommends pouring yourself an Irish Coffee Drop (Bailey’s and coffee liqueur), a Derby Girl (Bailey’s and Bulleit Bourbon), a Bailey’s Irish Coffee (Bailey’s, Bushmills Irish Whiskey and hot coffee) and an Irish Milk and Honey (Bailey’s, Bushmills Irish Whiskey, whipped cream and honey).

Fans of Irish Whiskey, whose sales are up over 400% since 2002, can indulge in additional Bushmills drinks like the Fools Gold (Grand Marnier, Bushmills and cinnamon liquor , i.e. Goldschlagger or After Shock) or the Irish Honey Smash (Bushmills Irish Honey, mint leaves, simple syrup, lemon and water).

Additional St. Patty’s Day-themed cocktails have been compiled by the Huffington Post, Fox News, the New York Post, and even Gizmodo.
