St. Patrick’s Day Cocktail Recipes

Luck o the Irish cocktailSt. Patty’s Day is nearly here  and many of us are going Irish for the occasion. Here are a couple St. Patrick’s Day cocktails from top mixologists. Both recipes call for simple syrup, which is easy to make at home. Heat equal parts water and white sugar until sugar melts. Store in refrigerator. Cheers!
