St. Patrick's Day with Glendalough - Ireland's First Craft Distillery

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all of our Irish lovers! We were so excited when we connected with Glendalough Irish Whisky to celebrate the origins of our heritage and the stem of where all our family drinking problems began! LOL JK JK... BUT we did recently learn that Glendalough is Ireland's first craft distillery bc A. We are so obviously cultured AF and B. We had just gotten back from Ireland for the first time! We were #blessed enough to have had an amazing first impression with Glendalough after being introduced to it during a tasting class that so happened to be taught by a sexy Irish bartender babe. So yeah, it was a love at first drank kinda thing for us. 

Therefore, we are so excited to share some yummy cocktails recipes for you to try at home with this incredible sizzurp. However, if these drinks are too much for you and you're more of a simple kind of guy/gal, we always recommend drinking your whiskey neat like Selena....;) Buttt if you prefer to sweeten the deal and let the babes behind the bar work their magic... you can order Glendalough at any of the following ATL hot spots: Biltong Bar, Establishment Midtown, Ormsbys, Fado, RiRa, Smith’s Old Bar, and Mac McGees. We hope these recipes inspire you all to be the best DIY drunk version of yourself and be sure to let us know how they work for you at home! Sláinte!!!
