Happy St Patrick´s Day!
Not all St Patty`s cocktails are Irish whiskey and you don`t need to be Irish to celebrate st Patrick´s Day! be Irish for a day and enjoy some good “green” cocktails or some Irish beer!
I have made a daiquiri with a good flavorful white rum, lime and sugar and a little green chartreuse for a herbal kick and a dash green curacao for color. The drink is actually not that dark green, it´just looks very dark in the picture. The drink has a grassy green color or shamrock green, hence the name.
2 oz white rum – i used Denizen rum
0.75 oz fresh lime juice
0.5 0z sugarcane syrup
0.25 oz green curacao
0.25 oz green chartreuse
Shake with ice and train into a chilled coupe with a green sugar rim and garnish with something appropriate for St Patrick´s Day.
This drink tastes like a classic daiquiri with a herbal and citrusy touch.
And what would St Patty`s Day be without a couple of Irish blessings?
May good luck be with you Wherever you go , And your blessing outnumber the shamrocks that grow.
May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
May neighbours respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.
