What To Drink On St Patrick's Day
Celebrate with one of Ireland's most famous drink exports, Bailey's Irish Cream. From the world's first cream liqueur to the most popular, 2,300 glasses are consumed every minute! Drink on its own, or in a creative St. Paddy's Day cocktail.
If you'd like to drink lager as the Irish do this St Paddy's Day, the favourite of the beer drinking folk in Ireland is Heineken. They actually have a brewery in Cork, meaning that most Heineken drank by people in the UK is actually made in Ireland - not in The Netherlands as one may assume.
Guinness is served 819% more often on St. Patrick's Day than any other day of the year. The Irish dry stout was originated at St James's Gate in Dublin in 1759. Since then, it has expanded into being brewed in 49 countries around the world, all using the Guinness extract - a secret ingredient that is added to every batch.
Very trendy these days, and there's no wonder why! Baby Guinness is a delectable mini version of the classic stout made from layering Bailey's on top of coffee liqueur - usually Kahlua or Tia Maria.
The Irish are also particularly fond of apple cider, such as Devil's Bit, Irish Kelly's or Magners. Fun fact: Magner's is known as Bulmer's in Ireland as the company could not trademark the name due to English Bulmers cider, which shares the same name. In Ireland, the original Bulmer's branding remains.
Of course, our favourite choice will always be a wee dram of Irish whiskey. From Jameson to Paddy to Proper 12, you can't go wrong on St Paddy's Day with the water of life. We've put together a list of the best Irish whiskeys in this post : Our Favourite St. Patricks Day Drams - have a gander!
