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.
