The Shamrock Shaker


Finally, St. Patty’s day is almost here! The holiday that brings everyone together to celebrate the Gods who invented beer.

Or something like that.

Whatever it is, I’m ready: I’ve got my head to toe in festive green apparel – including a low cut green tank with that lacy green bra.

Of course I’m looking forward to the drinking-fest. The thing is I’m not into the green beer. I don’t need my teeth to match my shirt – gross.

So I’m trying something a little more classy this year. A sweet Irishy drink I invented … well, stole from some website. Here’s the recipe:

The Shamrock Shaker

1/2 oz Kahlua

1/2 oz milk

1/2 oz Amaretto

Edible green and gold powder for garnish (check out the cake aisle in the grocery store)

Pour the goods into a shaker with ice. Shake, shake, shake and strain it all into a martini glass. Sprinkle the powders on top (or decorate the rim with ‘em) and enjoy. Then do it again. And again.

When my mom moved me into my dorm freshman year she left me $65 to buy a humidifier. I took that money and bought a pair of heels because I can sleep without damp air blowing in my face, but I can't rock a humidifier with a hot black mini.
