Pubs and bars will be packed all over Saskatchewan today, as everyone pretends to be a little bit Irish.

News Talk Radio's Chef Malcom gave some food and drink advice for this St. Patty's Day.

The best seller is always Guinness, but Malcom offered a simple thing for those who aren't a fan of "the black."

"Some nice Irish whiskey, a nice bottle of Jameson's, is always a good treat on a St. Patty's Day,"

For those just looking to spice up their Guinness, he suggested adding a dash of black currant cordial, or champagne.

For food, Malcolm said you can never go wrong with a hearty Irish stew.

Avoiding a hangover on the 18th

Rand Teed, host of the show "Drug Class" reminded people that the best advice for avoiding a rough morning the next day is to not drink too much.

"Under five drinks for under men and under four drinks for women, in any one evening," he counseled.

Teed also recommended having water between rounds.
