St Patrick's Day is almost upon us: the international festival of everyone pretending to be Irish. Now, I’m all for the craic, but I just can’t get behind the green beer thing. I did it once (just because I’m Irish) and it was awful. I’ll happily embrace the cockles & mussels, the cabbage and mash, but pleasssee, NO green beer! Instead, I’ll be drinking cocktails to celebrate: cocktails that are still (slightly) green, still spirited, still boozy, but - unlike their beery counterpart – slightly more feminine.
So, if chugging scores of coloured ale isn’t your thing, and in the spirit of all things green, may I suggest... Some Stylish Alternatives
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Pot of Gold The perfect Irish champagne cocktail.
Pear Drop Martini Best enjoyed on the rooftop (weather permitting) @ The Ivory (they mix the best PDM in the city).
Ginger & Cucumber Fizz (Shortcross it is then).
The Whiskey Smash (Of course the whiskey will be Irish)
Basil-Vodka Gimlet (This one’s for you Louise)
Oh, and if you insist on dressing up, a perfectly styled, mint green tutu, aka Carrie Bradshaw, might be just the job.
