Not a fan of beer? Here are a few cocktails that use Irish whiskey to help get your spirits high for St. Patrick’s Day.

(Recipes courtesy of goods.is)

Brainstorm

(as mixed by David Wondrich in Esquire Drinks)
2 oz. Irish whiskey
½ tablespoon French [i.e., dry] vermouth
½ tablespoon Bénédictine

Stir well with cracked ice. Strain into chilled cocktail glass and garnish with twist of orange peel.

Emerald (as mixed by David Wondrich in Esquire Drinks)
2 oz. Irish whiskey
1 oz. Italian [i.e., sweet] vermouth
dash orange bitters

Stir well with cracked ice. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.

Dublin Fog

2 oz. Irish whiskey
½ tablespoon Bénédictine
½ tablespoon Dolin Blanc vermouth
dash orange bitters
sprig mint

Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Roll gently to mix and release the flavors from the mint. Double-strain over new, finely-shaved ice packed tightly into a pewter or copper mug (or a standard tumbler or a red Solo cup, for that matter). Garnish with a new sprig of mint. Sprinkle powdered sugar over the top of the ice peeking out from the top of the cocktail.

Shillelagh

2 oz. Irish whiskey
1 oz. sweet vermouth [Carpano Antica]
Dash orange bitters
¼ oz. absinthe or pastis
¼ oz. Bénédictine

Stir all ingredients, except absinthe, with cracked ice. Rinse a chilled old-fashioned glass or cocktail glass with the absinthe and discard any remaining liquid. Strain the cocktail into the glass.
