Thank Goodness for St. Patrick

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of this happy, booze-filled holiday, make sure to meet up with a bunch of friends, throw on some green, and head out to your favorite bar! Without a doubt, almost every bar today is going to have specials all day and all night.  You may even get lucky and find some bars that are having specials all week long!

BUT if you want to budget The Ramen Budget way, make sure to head out to a restaurant or bar during Happy Hour! Although there are specials going on all day today, Happy Hour specials will be even more fantastic.

Even when it is not St. Patrick’s Day, Happy Hours still run (normally Monday-Friday), and should be considered the best parts of your days!

Personally, on St. Patrick’s Day, my favorite drinks is the (cheap) Green Dublin Apple Cocktail.


  • 2 oz. of Irish whiskey (or just whiskey for the budgeters)
  • 1 oz. of sour apple schnapps (or grab a cheap bottle of “Sour Apple Pucker”)
  • 2 oz. of white cranberry juice (Walmart brand, of course)

So, make sure to head out to your favorite bar, celebrate with friends…, and have an Irish Car Bomb for me!

Stay thrifty!
