Try these totally Jersey drinks for St. Patrick’s Day
Let's get Debbie Downer out of the way first. If you're under 21, or can't handle drinking due to addiction issues, or have any intention of driving while drinking, just don't. Don't even read this.
For the rest, St. Patrick's Day is a big day for adult libations. I was thinking about next month's holiday and the parties that will be had. Suddenly I remembered a site that gave you the recipes for almost every drink you ever heard of and many more you never did. Webtender.com.
Then I thought, working for the Jersey station and all, are there any crazy drinks with Jersey in the name?
Turns out yes.
