Georges’ bartender Josh Hantman proves whiskey is approachable and delicious.

With its pastel-green hue, Hantman’s “Irish Eyes” is a St. Patty’s Day stalwart, combining an ounce of Michael Collins Irish whiskey with a quarter-ounce of green crème de menthe and two ounces of cream. Or play it safe and try an Irish coffee, with a shot of whiskey and cool whipped cream to soothe the burn.

Hantman also recommends throwing cranberry-, cherry- and orange-flavored liqueurs and juices into the shaker. Try his Woodford Reserve black-cherry Manhattan any day of the year.
