There are very few well-known Irish whiskey cocktails, but the Gloom Lifter has managed to make its mark. This recipe from the early 1900s is a variation on the tasty, gin-based Clover Club. In a shaker, combine 2 ounces Irish whiskey, ¾ ounce raspberry syrup, ¾ ounce lemon juice and 1 small egg white. Dry shake (without ice) 15 seconds, then add ice and shake an additional 30 to 40 seconds. Fine strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist. - Ted and Jamie Kilgore, USBG, B.A.R. Ready, BarSmart and co-owners/bartenders at Planter’s House

Guinness and Jameson might be your first choices, but wine can also work with corned beef and cabbage. My bottle for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day feast is Gérard Bertrand Perles de Sauvignon Blanc. The Languedoc-Roussillon wine has acidity to cut through the fat and big enough flavors to stare down the typically wine-unfriendly cabbage. France isn’t all that far from Ireland. $17.

Break out of your St. Pat’s comfort zone with the new Left Hand Nitro Chai Milk Stout. An icon in the canned nitro craze and leading the milk stout trend, Left Hand has outdone itself by adding chai spice to its flagship for a beer that tastes like your favorite coffee shop’s dirty chai. Aromatics of nutmeg, clove, cardamom, cinnamon and ginger highlight a palate rich with roasted malt, notes of coffee and a subtle, lactose-driven sweetness.
