'Sláinte' in Style with These St. Patrick's Day Cocktails
Ireland has a monster pub culture, and that love for sitting around, throwing back pints, and talking about sheep and four-leaf clovers or whatever has given the Irish booze industry big-time appeal. And when it comes to tasty pints, few beers are as recognizable as Guinness. The rich, inky stout dates back to 1759, when Arthur Guinness signed a 9,000-year lease on a dilapidated brewery at Dublin's St. James's Gate - dude must've had great credit - and began producing his now-iconic drink. More than 250 years later "the black stuff" is crazy popular, with people downing 13 million pints of Guinness on St. Patrick's Day alone.
