While not a legal holiday in the United States, St. Patrick’s Day is still widely recognized and celebrated, mostly with the “wearing of the green”, imbibing in green beer and other spirits, and—our favorite—enjoying great Irish food. From Irish Soda Bread to Lamb Stew to Guinness Ice Cream, we’re all a wee bit Irish on March 17th!
And since ginger beer is so popular these days, here’s one of our favorite drink recipes—
The Blarney Stone
(makes one cocktail)
2 oz. Irish Whiskey
1 oz. fresh lime juice
Ginger beer, chilled
Add whiskey and lime juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into cocktail glass, top with ginger beer, and garnish with a lime wedge.
No matter what you do this St. Patrick’s Day, Liberty Lane Catering hopes you find yourself surrounded by great friends, great music, and of course, great food!
