Irish Buck Cocktail

Happy Hour: Irish Buck

St. Patrick's Day isn't until tomorrow, but we've been celebrating all week. If you don't really have a penchant for black and tans, and the prospect of drinking whiskey straight-up isn't really your thing, then consider raising a glass with the Irish Buck.
