Luck of the Irish Flows with Boston Cocktailians

Last year Boston bartenders rallied together to create a few St. Patrick’s Day cocktails to keep revelers sipping throughout the month of March. Rather than keep the holiday to one long party thrashing, take time to muddle, stir and sip a few of these crafty libations that have generously been made available by the creative cocktailians behind the muddling stick.
