St. Patrick's Whiskey CocktailThe day is meant to commemorate St. Patrick's Day (Irish Lá Fhéile Pádraig) by the Irish bishop Patrick, who lived around the 5th century and was the first Christian missionary in Ireland. Some historians believe that Patrick is worshipped in the Catholic Church as a saint and is therefore considered a patron saint.

Today, the festival is celebrated worldwide with lots of joy to the partakers with costumes, the colour green and anything else “Irish”. The folk festival can be found in all parts of Ireland whilst showcasing the diversity and vibrancy of the island.

With green being the predominant colour, almost anything in any shade of green is appropriate, but most likely the famous shamrock or leprechaun will make an appearance. Don’t be surprised if a pint of your favourite beer or even whiskey is coloured green; for this holiday, the colour knows no limits!
