St. Patrick's Day Drinks

 "Saint Patrick was a gentleman, Who through strategy and stealth, Drove all the snakes from Ireland, Here’s a toasting to his health. But not too many toastings, Lest you lose yourself and then, Forget the good Saint Patrick, And see all those snakes again."

St. Patrick's Day and drinking pretty much go hand in hand. Although its fun to drink Irish drinks on an Irish holiday a lot of Irish drinks are not diet friendly......Jameson Irish Whiskey - 69 calories for 1 ounce, Guinness - 210 calories for 1 pint, Killians Irish Red - 163 calories for 12 ounces, Bailey's Irish Cream - 121 calories for 1.3 ounces and my husband's favorite RedBreast Irish Whiskey - 65 calories for 1 ounce.
So this year I did some searching and found a website with 5 Low Calorie St. Patrick's Day drink recipes and now I am excited to celebrate St. Patrick's day with out being terrified of drinking away my daily calories!
