The Madtinis of St. Patrick’s Day

St Patrick's Day Madtinis

“Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day”. That goes double for the hard working Intoxicologists at Madtini Research Labs. They’ve been wearing green lab coats, humming Danny Boy and dancing without moving their arms. Not sure why they’ve been dancing in the lab, I’m sure its not optimal for workplace safety.

They’ve been waiting in anticipation all year to start mixing magic with Irish Whiskey, delicious Bailey’s Irish Cream and maybe even a wee bit of Creme de Menthe for color and minty flavor. Thanks to their hard work, we now can offer up 6 tasty alternatives to the usual choice of a (or several) green beer.

And as the Irish Rovers used to say as they signed off… May you be in Heaven a full half hour before the Devil knows you’re dead.

And now back to watching YouTube clips of Sean Connery singing (yes, singing) in Darby O’Gill and the Little People. Cheers!
