    St. Patrick's Day is serious. It's a boozy affair where crowds bust out in their greenest of greens and plot the map with a hit list of watering holes. Nothing fine and fancy, just full on, convivial fun with lively conversation and hearty drinking companions. This year, bring the after-party to your place and wow them with your mixology skills courtesy of some great bartenders around the country. Nothing complicated here and a few little shortcuts will help you churn out cocktails even if you are a little tipsy yourself.

    A take on traditional Irish beverages, these naughty little spin-offs will make you a legend of a leprechaun.

    BACK AT THE O'LEARY'S, Extra Fancy Beverage Dir. Robert Krueger

    ‪1 ounce Laird's Apple Whiskey
    3/4 ounce Branca Menta
    1/4 ounce Demerara syrup (equal parts sugar and water)
    Pernod Absinthe whipped cream (4 ounces heavy cream with 1 ounce simple syrup and 1/2 ounce Pernod Absinthe whisked to soft peaks)
    Hot Coffee

    ‪Prepare the coffee. Preheat an Irish Coffee Glass with hot water. Make the whipped cream if you haven't done so already. Empty the glass and add the booze and sugar syrup. When the coffee is done, pour it to 1-inch short of the top of the glass. Add whipped cream slowly so it floats, leaving room at the top of the glass to avoid overflow.
