St. Patrick’s day cocktails. You’re here cos you’d like some ideas for Saturday aren’t you?!
St. Patrick’s Day is an excuse for people to imbibe and the whole world (well parts of it at least) seem to be draped in everything green. It is also a Saturday this year – so the weekend – even better. And for those interested in such mighty contests as the 6 Nations rugby, that’s another reason to celebrate the Irish.
Do you need any more excuses to celebrate, raise a glass and enjoy the craic?
Of all the cocktail recipes out there for St. Patrick’s themed cocktails, these are 2 of the best;
2 msrs Jamesons Irish whiskey
1 tbsp of Green Chartreuse
1 tbsp Green creme de menthe
Admittedly this is a full on whiskey based drink. The other 2 ingredients are principally there to provide a bit of colour. However, both the highly minty creme de menthe and the powerful green Chartreuse are big robust flavours so they add flavour and sweetness to the mix.
Prefer something more sparkly?
Our second tip is for something a whole lot gentler : The Avoca Sparkler – a champagne based cocktail (Cava or Prosecco work equally well as an alternative.)
1/2 msr Gin
1/2 msr Midori
topped up with chilled champagne
Midori is a sweet, melon based liqueur so works well with Gin. This is a fairly light and summery type of flavour being fruity and sparkly in nature.
