We need to make the most out of the fact that we can’t go and have our big St Patrick's Day celebrations (definitely the most celebrated Saint's day). Sure, a pint of Guinness in a room full of people is great (and boy do I miss being able to go to the pub), but it’s time to adapt. So why not take your St Patrick's Day celebrations to a new level and whip up some Irish whiskey cocktails at home? It sounds like the perfect excuse to me.

Here are five simply delicious recipes that might have you seeing rainbows.

Classic Whiskey Sour

Ronan Collins, senior brand ambassador at Jameson & Powers Whiskey says, "There’s a reason the whiskey sour is one of the most famous after-dinner cocktails, and with the addition of Jameson Black Barrel, you get the added bonus of enhanced spiciness, vanilla sweetness and sherry fruit, in what is already a very tasty cocktail – the perfect tipple to celebrate!"

As after-dinner cocktails go, the whiskey sour is one of the most famous.
