If you’re planning your wedding, what better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than to taste test signature wedding cocktail options? In the spirit of the Irish holiday, mixologist Pamela Wiznitzer of Seamstress NYC crafted three different mouthwatering cocktails. The signature ingredient? Kerrygold Irish cream liqueur—and it might just be the signature wedding cocktail ingredient you need. While rich Irish cream is known for being a cozy addition to freshly brewed coffee or hot chocolate, tossing it with ice makes it a perfect cool and sweet cocktail treat. So take a break from your other wedding to-dos and give these tasty recipes a try—and consider it the best kind of multitasking.
