Beyond Green Beer

If you’re looking for a more sophisticated take on St. Paddy’s, try one of these festive holiday libations.

St. Patrick’s Curse

Head to Walnut Creek Yacht Club on Saturday, March 16 (they’re closed on Sundays), for a selection of unique themed cocktails, including this Yacht Club original (pictured above): Bushmills Irish whiskey, Midori, lime juice, simple syrup, and Angostura bitters, shaken and served over ice with a lime wedge. 1555 Bonanza St., Walnut Creek, (925) 944-3474, wcyc.net.

Irish Coffee

In honor of the holiday, Moresi’s Chophouse takes an Irish coffee—which was first introduced to the United States by a Bay Area bartender—and gives it an extra boozy kick by infusing the whipped cream with Jameson Irish whiskey. 6115 Main St., Clayton, (925) 672-1333, moresischophouse.com.

Proper Black and Tans

As a nod to their Irish brothers, both British-themed The Crown in Danville and Pleasanton’s Redcoats devote the day to serving authentic black and tans, layering the Bass and Guinness beers in a proper 20-ounce imperial pint. 331 Hartz Ave., Danville, (925) 855-2185, crownpub.com; 336 Saint Mary St., Pleasanton, (925) 462-6600, redcoatspub.com.
