Wet the Shamrock

Unless you’ve been hiding away under a rock since Monday night, you’ll know that good old Saint Patrick’s Day happened yesterday. The festivities were beyond epic this year, with my hometown breaking the world record for having a whole LOT of Elsas (and princesses) walk in the parade. There were 771 to be exact. Pretty cool – obviously – because all those Elsas made the temperatures drop ❄️

Anyways, in the spirit of being Irish, we did wet the shamrock with a few tasteful cocktails. Sure, it would have been rude not to. We were lacking in mint leaves and basil to garnish, but they tasted pretty damn good if I do say so myself.

So, I will post the recipes. They’re a bit late, I know, but at least they’re here for the next time you decide to get your Oirish on 🍀 Also, as ever, I totally promote responsible drinking. Today is the anniversary of a dear friend of mine. I miss her much. So, respect Diageo! ‘Nuff said.
