Everybody will love this green whiskey cocktail. Okay, so if you don't like creamy, minty drinks this is probably not for you, but for the rest of us it's a delight.

On St. Patrick's Day give your Irish sweetheart an Irish Eyes cocktail, look into her eyes and say "Tá tú go h-álainn" (You're beautiful).

Now this is interesting., Member thusled

This cocktail is bizarre in the best possible way. The whiskey and the creme almost cancel each other out making for a surprisingly mild taste for something with such strong ingredients. I wouldn't say it's one of my favorites ( or maybe I would, I'm undecided), but it's a definite change of pace and a very good cocktail. I give it five stars for sheer novelty.
