For St. Patrick’s Day, we’ve rounded up some drinks ideas for those who don’t drink Guinness but still want to celebrate the Irish. Here a list of five Irish drinks that you can try this year we found at Delish.

Irish Coffee

You can change up your afternoon coffee with this recipe. We might even consider this dessert with the chocolate shavings and heavy cream.

2 tsp. light brown sugar
2 oz. Irish whiskey
1 c. brewed coffee
1/2 c. heavy cream for topping
Chocolate shavings, for garnish

Pot of Gold Shots

These are festive and so cute! Make a separate batch for the kids by omitting the whiskey and add 1/2 cup water instead.

1/2 c. cold whiskey
1 c. Cool Whip
Gold sprinkles
