The launch party & media preview happened at this bar called Donkey & Crow (really). It’s an Irish-themed one in TREC KL. Food was good, and the drinks too of course.

Arr!

And over at Jarrod & Rawlins (D’sara Heights), today (Thu) sees a St Patrick’s party from 6pm, with free/cheap Guinness, foodstuff, stand-up comedy & more.

'Perfect pint'?? Isn't that extinct? Very misleading term, GAB. It's not "responsible".

Go delve into the darkness of Guinness. Try and survive.

St Patrick’s Day, and some Irish cocktails

The patron saint of Ireland has his day comin up on Thursday, March 17. St Patrick was responsible for transforming Ireland from a pagan country with many ancient religious practices and beliefs into a Christian community.

Why does everyone drink on St Patrick’s Day then?

Do we even need a reason??

In Ireland, it was traditionally a day of mass and family. Elsewhere, its anything but that. Last year’s party here was cool. Am gonna get real high riding a St Paddy’s bus tomw.

Irish stouts are the staple on St Paddy's Day

Anyway, here’re some Irish cocktails, using mostly whiskey, which is an Irish invention; starting with the simple but famous..

Irish Coffee!

If u have an IQ below 50 and know how to heat water, u can do this! Make coffee (with sugar & cream). Add Irish whiskey.

Created by Joseph Sheridan (hence the liqueur called Sheridan’s), a chef at an Irish airport restaurant in 1940 for weary travellers.

Enjoying Irish Coffee (with Scotch) with d boys in Sarawak

Irish actor and musician Alex Levine once said, “Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: caffeine, sugar, fat and alcohol.” Wise words.

Ring of Kerry

Half shot of coffee liqueur, 1,5 shots (45ml) of Irish whiskey, 1 shot cream liqueur, shake ’em with ice, pour into chilled glass. Top with shaved chocolate.

Irish Buck

Squeeze some lemon into a glass of whiskey. Top with ginger ale.

PV Doyle

Mix one shot of creme de menthe with 1.5 shots of Irish whiskey, and 30ml of cream. Shake with ice, pour and top with maraschino cherries.

Here are a coupla Irish toasts:

May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.

And..

May you live to be a hundred years
With one extra year to repent!
.

Have a merry St Patrick’s Day 2011 yall.

D price of Guinness draft has been dropping steadily since it was introduced. There were quite a few promos before St Paddy’s Fest. Fear not, u can still get some deals at these four outlets, among others.

Btw Connor’s Irish Stout has a promo at Deutsche Haus in TTDI (and i think DP) – $34.50 for two pints all day, everyday. = $17.25 NETT a pint. And there’s kick-ass pork knuckle!

Fitou by the chillout lake in Desa Park City has d best afternoon happy hours gig as all drafts (incl Guinness) at $50 for three pints, which is $16.66 NETT each. 12pm-5pm including weekends. Niice.

Sid’s (all outlets) Guinness is $19.55 NETT all night for April.

PUBLIC in TTDI Plaza has d sweetest deal coz its permanent – $18.40 NETT – all day, everyday, all year!

But d best price for a pint at d mo is at Tex-Mex specialist Frontera in Jaya One – only 15 bucks NETT from 10pm until closing DAILY. When other’s happy hours have ended, Frontera’s is just beginning! Until May 5th. (A pitcher of Tiger is $30 NETT.) Real tequilas & margaritas too. And killa chili cheese burger.
