Green Machin Punch: 1 bottle of vodka, one 12-ounce can of frozen limeade concentrate, ½ gallon lemon sherbet, and ½ gallon lime sherbet. Dissolve the concentrate into the vodka, and then add the sherbet. If you want to make this alcohol-free, leave out the vodka.

Irish Dream: Take ½ ounce Irish cream liqueur, ½ ounce hazelnut liqueur, ½ ounce brown crème de cacao, and one scoop of vanilla ice cream. Combine these ingredients in a blender with ice.

Irish Rickey - Combine 1 ½ ounce blended whiskey with 1 ounce lime juice, and top off with club soda. Garnish with a lime twist.

Irish Shillelagh: 1 ½ ounce Irish whiskey, ½ ounce light rum, ½ ounce sloe gin, 1 teaspoon powdered sugar, 1 ounce lemon juice, ¼ cup of diced peaches, and ¼ cup raspberries. Combine the ingredients in a blender, and garnish with raspberries.

Irish Coffee: Dissolve granulated sugar (enough to taste) into 2 ounces of Irish whiskey. Add hot coffee, leaving a half-inch at the top of the glass. Top with whipped cream.

Depth Charge: Mix 2 ounces of peppermint schnapps with 1 pint of beer. Pour the schnapps first and stir slightly.
