The Irish Breakfast Shot : Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day

Shots! Shots! Shots!

No doubt you’ll hear that phrase a time or two if you’re out drinking and celebrating this St. Patrick’s Day. And, if you are so inclined to forego the green beer and instead throw back a shot or two, our pick for the perfect shot is The Irish Breakfast. It’s one shot of half Irish Whiskey and half butterscotch schnapps, followed immediately by one shot of pure orange juice, which is finally followed by some crispy bacon. Between the butterscotch, the juice, and the bacon, the taste is similar to dragging your bacon through the syrup from your pancakes.  And doesn’t Irish Whiskey make breakfast more fun? We think so.

For more ways to celebrate today, check out our St. Pat’s Day post on where to get your Irish on.

    Terry Beal on AM 860 is stealing your drink, on his radio show this friday, he devoted almost entire show to it and said nobody had heard of it until he invented it. Who is the true author?
