I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t get all the hype surrounding St. Patrick’s Day.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a problem spending an entire day celebrating partying, drinking and all things green, but we already have the Super Bowl, right?
Call me an old fart, but maybe drinking all day isn’t the best thing to celebrate. Your bod sure doesn’t think so.
But one drink is ok.
Here’s your one drink.
Go big or go home, ’cause minty whiskey blood orange sours are where it’s at.
Refreshing mint muddled with powdered sugar and lime.
Ice. Key ingredient.
Blood orange to top ‘er off.
One outstandingly potent, tart, yet refreshing straight up man cocktail.
But it looks so pretty right?!
Strong enough for a man, pink enough for a woman. (Is this a Degree advertisement or what.)
After a few sips you’ll get why you’ll be set with one. Strong but perfect sip quality, and no worries if the ice melts, just makes it easier to drink.
So if you’re heading out for St. Patty’s Day and aren’t into drinking dyed green beer, try on one of these for size.
You’ll stand up to any Irishman with this cocktail.
And that’s coming from an Irish(EnglishGermanDutch)woman, so I think I know what I’m talking about.
And if not, who cares, no one else will either.
Happy Hump Day!
What’s your St. Patrick’s Day like? Do you go all out, hit a few bars or could care less?
