The LUCKY FROG
Everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day,
as the saying goes. The holiday began as
a reverential day in Ireland honoring the country’s patron saint, but in the United States, immigrants used the day to celebrate their heritage. They incorporated their tradition of drinking at wakes (it was a day honoring St. Patrick’s death, after all) into the festivities they were establishing in their new country. The combination proved to be a hit, and cities across the nation began holding celebrations that included parades, Irish food and, of course, lots of drinking. Use these pairings that incorporate traditional Irish ingredients at your next St. Patrick’s Day party and sláinte! Or cheers to your health!
This cocktail lightens the heavy mouthfeel of Guinness and adds hints of marzipan with fizzy sparkling wine, which complements the salty, sweet Guinness-spiked brownies.
