March 3 is Irish Whiskey Day. How was March 3 given the honor of being associated with this particular spirit? Work with me here, I will relay the information, but someone probably came up with it while they were drinking. Don't people come up with really great ideas while they are drinking? From Days of The,

  • There are 3 leaves in the Shamrock, the symbol of Ireland
  • There are three types of Irish whiskey, Single Malt, Single Grain and Single Pot Still
  • Irish Whiskey is distilled at least three times.

Are there enough 'Threes' to understand why Irish Whiskey Day is on 3/3?

Interestingly enough, it is also Moscow Mule Day. Can you combine the two things? Of course you can! Make what is called an Irish Mule!

  • 2 oz Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey
  • Ginger Beer or Nine Pin Ginger Hard Cider
  • Ice
  • Limes
  • Orange Bitters

Fill a glass with ice. Pour in the Irish Whiskey, then add the ginger beer/ ginger hard cider. Add a squeeze of lime juice to taste, then a few dashes of the orange bitters. You then have a Irish Mule.

To make it a Bourbon mule, use Bourbon instead of Irish Whiskey. To make it a Moscow Mule, use vodka. For a Dark n Stormy, use a dark rum like Myers. Cheers.
