Irish Whiskey Mules

Sláinte! Put down the green beer and make these Irish whiskey mules this St. Paddy’s Day instead.

I don’t think I’ve shared it yet on the blog, but I recently moved all the way to Indiana from my hometown of Savannah, GA where St. Patrick’s Day is a BIG deal. We’re talking no school, and your whole family is there for the parade. This year I’m celebrating from afar with these cocktails!

PS: If you’ve seen the word before but didn’t know, sláinte is a toast that means health. Here’s what the ol’ Wikipedia has to say: “Sláinte means “health” in Irish and Scottish Gaelic. It is commonly used as a drinking toast in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man.” Now you know! Let’s make drinks.
