Ultimate fighter Conor McGregor Comes Correct with these St. Patrick’s Day Cocktails

Irish mixed martial artist and boxer Conor Anthony McGregor may be a fighter, but he’s also a lover of luxury. He’s got not one but three Rolls Royce’s in his garage (along with some Lamborghinis and McLarens). His watch collection is comprised of Rolexes and Patek Phillipes. McGregor knows how to live life right.

McGregor is also a fan of fine spirits. Which is why he launched the Proper No. 12 — a triple-distilled, aged three years, and bottled in Ireland whiskey. When the brand was introduced in 2018, the fighter said that the liquor was meant to pay tribute to his heritage. “Dublin 12” is the postal code for the Crumlin area of Dublin where the fighter grew up. The bottle copy assures it’s a “proper Irish whiskey that’s true to Ireland … a proper salute to all.”

So this St. Patrick’s Day it seems right to leave the green beer behind and instead celebrate with a proper Irish Whiskey. Here are the Notorious MMA’s favourite mixed martial drinks.
