Pot-o-Gold

Saint Patricks Day has arrived!  Couldn’t have come at a better time either.  Prepare yourself for the Irish Car bombs, pints of Guinness and all things green!  I have one more drink to share with my readers this year before I set you free to get as sloshed as you wish this Monday.  Pot-o-Gold.  Now there are actually a billion different recipes on the internets named after the lucky leprechauns golden stash.  But mine is different, and simple – and delicious.  Wether or not it’s better is still left up to your personal opinion.  Anyway, here goes nothing and as always, Happy Saint Patricks Day!

Thank your lucky Leprechauns this Saint Patricks Day, you've found the pot of gold!

Getting sick of  all the whiskey drinks this Saint Patricks day?  How about trying some gin on for size?  If there was any liquor more under rated than gin – I don’t know of it.  I think it’s because people are afraid.  It sort of tastes like pine needles but in a way that can be really refreshing.  You would know if you lived in the Pacific Northwest.  Any how, I’m getting pretty off topic here.  Saint Patricks Day.  Green.  Gin.  Try it.

Golden Clover

1oz Gin

1oz Perrier Lime Soda Water

.5oz  Midori Melon Liqueur

Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice and pour into a glass. Simple!

Margarita Midori

Loved and consumed by millions, friends and families around the world honor this sacred tequila, triple sec and lime drink every year on February 22.

Celebrate national Margarita day with a Midori Margarita

This February 22nd I am honoring this glorious day with a Midori Margarita made specially with Casa Noble Tequila.  I’ve used Casa Noble before in other margarita posts and that is because it is a fantastically smooth and delicious tequila.  Great in not only margaritas but also for sipping with a little lime.

Anyway, back to the margarita day!  No one really knows who ‘invented’ the first margarita – but the first blended margarita was said to have made its appearance in the 1970′s...
