My rule is this: If it ain't Irish beer or Irish whiskey, (yes, with an "e") you are NOT allowed to drink it on St. Patrick's Day.

For me, like many South Jersey Americans if Irish lineage, St. Patrick's Day is a day to get in touch with our heritage. A big part of the holiday (and our heritage) is a "proper bit o' the drop". By proper, I mean Irish. Anything else is not allowed in my house.

THE FOLLOWING DRINKS ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED on St. Patrick's Day:

  1. Corona
  2. Beer drunk out of a can (kegs don't count as a can)
  3. Wine
  4. Anything beer that says "Oktoberfest"
  5. Any drink with a garnish or tiny umbrella in it
  6. Green Beer *** I will allow this, if it is the only option, because every other drink available is on this list
  7. White Russian
  8. Bay Breeze/Margarita/Pina Colada (if it's mentioned in a Jimmy Buffet song - NO)
  9. O'doul's
  10. Hard Cider
  11. Any drink in a plastic up (including Irish beer or whiskey). Serve a proper drink in a proper glass, thank you.
