Happy St. Patrick's Day!
In previous years, I would've been lined up at the pub by now with my friends and family, eagerly waiting to celebrate together. (Because nothing says "togetherness" like having a pint at 8am, right?)
Well, that sort of fun and chaos is not on the docket this year for me, I'm afraid. But if you're among the young and carefree who will be happily imbibing today with the masses, why not try something other than a Guinness? How about a Blarney Stone? It's a blend of Irish whiskey, lime juice and ginger beer. Sounds good, doesn't it?
The Blarney Stone:
2 oz. Irish whiskey
1 oz. lime juice
Lime twist (a strip of the lime rind)
Add the whiskey and lime juice in a shaker. Shake for 15-30 seconds. Strain into a glass, top with a float of ginger beer, and garnish with the lime twist.
