Beers, whiskies, all green everything…these are a few of the things that make St. Patrick’s Day great. Not to mention celebrating Irish culture! And with all the drinking involved with this holiday, it’s only natural to soak it up with some delicious treats. We know of a few in NYC that’ll make you feel lucky even if you aren’t Irish.

This tasty treat combines a classic Irish brew into a dessert everyone loves. The dessert special will be available from March 16-18 and April 6-8 for just $4.75.
