Drowning The Shamrock
The meaning of “drowning the shamrock” is from years past in Ireland. People in Ireland would wear a Shamrock was to show unity and to show the Trinity. As the men continued to wear a shamrock on their left chest, they would celebrate St. Patrick’s day most times in the local pub. The Lent season usually is lifted for the one day so that everyone could enjoy. After mass, everyone heads over to the local pub to celebrate the memory of St. Patrick.
The shamrock, which is worn out on the left chest of the coat or hat is removed & put into the final glass. A toast is a toast to health, and the shamrock should be picked out from the bottom of the glass and thrown over the left shoulder and followed by a toast.
Side note–Drinking whiskey is symbolic meaning that you are cleansing yourself from Satan.
