WESTWOOD— Can't bear to guzzle Jameson on Saturday? Perhaps a little something sweet instead, in the form of the Shamrocker. Napa Valley Grille's drink for St. Pat's is so refined that it might just offset all of the UCLA binge drinking that's bound to happen this weekend. It's cocktail made from mint bourbon, white chocolate, Irish Whiskey, and coffee, accented with green crème de menthe whipped cream. $10 a pop. [EaterWire]
