We Asked an Irish Master of Whiskey For His Do’s and Don’ts of St. Patrick’s Day
That’s Gerry Graham. He’s a big fan of whiskey. So much so that he made it his career. He’s the head of all things delicious (whiskey), at Bushmills, so we thought he’d the best advice for all you drinkers on the best day of the year (which is today, duh).
Do wear green on St. Patrick’s Day.
Don’t wear a green spandex jumpsuit. Gotta leave room for all the Irish food.
Do abbreivate with St. Paddy’s Day.
Do NOT, under any circumstances, refer to it as St. Patty’s Day. Who is Patty?
Do include at least 2 Irish people in every photo.
Don’t take selfies on St. Patrick’s Day.
Do #whiskey #Shamrock #Irish in your Instagram photos.
Don’t black and white filters. Green is necessary and your Bushmills/Guiness will look weird.
Do join in on Irish sing-a-longs.
Don’t try to get the words right. It doesn’t matter.
Do tell an Irish person your great, great, great, great, great grandfather is Irish.
Don’t tell an Irish person your great, great, great, great, great grandfather is Irish.
[Ed. Note: We aren’t sure what he means by that, but it’s 4:00 on St. Paddy’s day.]
Do be smart like your phone. Call a cab or use Uber.
Don’t forget about your friends. Make sure everyone gets one safe.
