CHEERS TO ST PATRICK`S DAY!

Time to move in an Irish direction…it`s soon St Patrick`s Day (or St Paddy`s Day) and i`m gonna add a splash of Irish whiskey and dress up my cocktails in green.

For those who doesn`t know St Patrick´s day is a cultural and religious holiday in Ireland and also widely celebrated as a public holiday with parades etc in places such as England, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, among others.

The colour associated with Saint Patrick was actually originally blue, but over the years it has changed to be green – and green ribbons and shamrocks were worn in celebration of St Patrick’s Day as early as the 17th century.

On this blog i`m gonna cheer with a green cocktail and an irish toast:

May you have all the happiness
and luck that life can hold—
And at the end of all your rainbows
may you find a pot of gold.
