It's Easy Being Green: Clothing and Drink Recipes for St. Patrick's Day

Seems like Saint Patrick's Day is the perfect excuse to drink.  A lot!  It's also the perfect excuse to go shopping for something green.  Not that you needed an excuse for either since you are grown & sexy (I would hope) right?  Well drinking and dressing grown & sexy go hand in hand to me.  After all let's face it, if I saw a man in an impeccable birds-eye double-breasted bespoke suit picking up a two-pack of Arbor Mist, I'd kinda cringe.  I'd also be no less dumbfounded if I saw a sweaty skater with sagging Levis and stickered deck underarm walk into a swanky Tribeca steakhouse and order a Grand Marnier cocktail.

Well on this unofficial drinking holiday I say keep the glass full and the attire well-attuned.  That's how I'd do it.  However, I say erase the pretension and get ready to move with the gang on that bar crawl.  Here are some at-ease recipes involving several of my loves whiskey, ginger and menswear.

Be comfy for that bar crawl (or for being hungover on your bestie's sofa) in these handsome St. Patty's finds of mine:

Clockwise from topleft:  Printed shirt from Carharrtt Work in Progress at Hypebeast.com, Bomber from Dolce & Gabbana at TheCorner.com, thing stripe sock from Happy Socks at Happy Socks.com, Cropped Trousers from Umit Benan at LuisAviaRoma.com, low-top sneakers from Moncler at SSense.com and wool/cashmere/rabbit hair sweater from J.Crew at MrPorter.com

What better way to enjoy St. Patty's day than with the BIG GINGER®, a twist on an Irish classic from 2 GINGERS®, a new smooth, malty and lightly sweet Irish whiskey to hit the shelves.  The result is a tempting and refreshing cocktail with notes of citrus, caramel and vanilla.  2 GINGERS® is worth the trip to your whiskey retailer today and worth demanding from your favorite local watering hole, if it's not there already.

2 parts 2 GINGERS® Irish Whiskey
Ginger Ale
Lemon Wedge
Lime Wedge
METHOD: Pour the 2 GINGERS® Irish Whiskey into a pint glass with ice. Top with ginger ale, followed by a wedge of a lemon and lime.


You've now got some really good recipes for a pretty smooth St. Patty's day.  As always, enjoy responsibly and arrive dashingly.
