Mount Rushmore of Good St. Patricks Day Drinks

March 13, 2009

So it’s Friday the 13th, we just lost to UNC essentially crushing our NCAA hopes of being crushed in the second round, and I’m bored as hell here at work, just waiting for 5:30 to roll around so I can go drink.

So, I figured I would try to make another one of those Mount Rushmore lists that have gotten so much discussion on the comment section. Here we go:

The Mount Rushmore of Good St. Patrick’s Day Drinks

1. Black and Tan

This delicious combination is the best of both worlds with a heavy stout and a light ale splitting the glass in half. I think I might get one of these tonight. Interesting to make and wonderful to drink. Of course you have to use Irish/English beers to make, unless you want to make a redneck black and tan which is Bud Light Lime and coffee.

2. Jameson Whiskey

I personally don’t like whiskey, but then again I’m a beer guy. I would rather take hearty gulps of alcoholic liquid rather than sip on whiskey. That’s just me. But I know that other people love whiskey, and if I had to drink some on St. Patty’s Day, it would be Jameson. (Editor’s note: when I searched for “jameson” on Google to get the picture, I didn’t even think about how it would come up with the adult film star of the same name. Does this mean I’m getting more mature?)

3. Irish Car Bombs

Yes we all know that the name is offensive and blah blah blah. But the offensiveness of the name doesn’t take away from the absolute deliciousness of the drink. The only problem I have with this drink is that you’re forced to chug it, which severley limits the time that the sweet sweet nectar spends atop your tastebuds.

4. Guinness

Can, bottle, or draught, this is the juice of the gods. Now, I’ll admit. I wasn’t a fan of Guinness until I went to Northern England. Then I began drinking the local which was very much like Guinness. Kinda heavy and delicious. Now I barely drink anything else. It truly is the quintessential St. Patrick’s Day beverage. If I remember correctly, this was Buddy Christ’s favorite drink.
