Happy St. Patty's Day

Just because St. Patrick's day falls on a Tuesday this year, doesn't mean you can't go the extra mile and celebrate. Have a low key dinner for your closest friends with all of your favorite fixings like: Bangers and mash; corn beef and cabbage; and potato soup. Be sure to accompany your meal with these signature St. Patrick's day drinks:

  • Green Beer- Take you favorite light beer, preferably Irish, and add a few drop of green food coloring which can be picked up at any major grocery store for cheap.
  • Black and Tans- Fill a pint glass half way with a light ale like Bass or Harps, then slowly pour in a dark stout like Guinness.
  • Green Martini- Add gin, creme de menthe, and bitters into a martini shaker. Shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
2 jiggers of gin
2 jiggers of crème de menthe
2 splashes of mint bitters

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
