    Here is a few of #connecticutschoolofbartending
    favorites that I created back in the late 80's for our annual St Patrick's Day Celebration.
    The McSlide:
    My personal favorite creation:
    Blend: 3/4 oz. Baileys, 1/3 oz. Kahlua and 2/3 oz. Jameson with 1/1/2 oz. Half and Half or cream and 5 plus oz. ice. Once blended, add shaved chocolate and blend for 2 seconds. Garnish with a rosette of whipped cream made with a bit of the same liqueurs (I call it Irish Dream) add a shaved chocolate curl. Preparation note. To blend accurately,Fill 10 oz. presentation glass with ice and cover with ingredients is a simple way to avoid over icing.

    Now 2 Cicktails and then the Sorbet finale,

    St Patrick's Day Cocktail Creations:
    Pot O' Gold- 1 oz. Jameson, 1/2 oz. Apple Pucker, splash Green Creme de Menthe, sqeeze fresh lime juice, 2 oz. sour mix. Shake and strain into chilled
    cocktail glass. Pour 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier slowly down side of cocktail glass so it layers on bottom of glass. Garnish mint leaves,shamrocks, and or lime slice.

    Peppermint Patrick -
    3/4 oz. Irish Whiskey, 1/2 oz. Midori, 1/2 oz. 1/4 oz. Green Creme de Menthe, 1 oz. cream. Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Pour 1/2 oz.
    Galliano down side of glass so it layers on bottom of glass. Garnish mint leaves and or shamrocks. You can fill a straw with Galliano, hold your thumb over the top of straw and carefully put straw to
    bottom of cocktail glass and release Galliano that way

    Although it is not Irish, this one is gloriously green. Create your own Mojito and then:

    Blend - ice, mint leaves, mint jelly and
    fresh lime juice and a bit of lime zest. Once blended add Baccardi rum slowly until you can just taste it.
    Then put in freezer to firm up,
    Scoop of Mojito Sherbet / Sorbet on top of a Bacardi Mojito equals a Float!!
    MMMMM MINT
