Hello friends! We are starting spring break this weekend, and we are looking ahead to St. Patrick’s Day. We both come from Irish ancestors. Craig’s grandmother’s maiden name was Gertrude Holmes. Rhonda’s grandmother was Mary Dorothea O’Donnell, and Mary Dorothea’s father was Patrick O’Donnell. Can you really get any more Irish than that? Whether you are Irish or just want to be, we have a fun little cocktail for you to toast your lads and lassies. You will believe that you were Mint to Be Irish.
Just like the lucky three leaf clover, this cocktail is made with three delicious spirits — Kerrygold Irish Cream, Zaya Rum, and Branca Menta.
Add 2 ounces of Kerrygold Irish Cream, 1 ounce of Zaya Rum, and 1/2 ounce of Branca Menta to a shaker. Top with a scoop of ice and shake for 20-30 seconds. Pour into a small cordial glass and garnish with a mint leaf.
Yummo! This tasty sipper will have you kissing the Blarney Stone and dancing an Irish jig.
