I have a GREAT drink to finish up the month, a true “Farewell to February.” But, as promised, here’s a brief glimpse of what to expect for March, as well an ingredient list.
March will be another festive month – I am going GREEN! These are not listed in any particular order as I usually let my mood dictate what to mix, but this looks good so I might go for it. The Angry Pirate, Emerald City and Green Flash all seem very similar with subtle differences – they are tropical. The Shamrock Shimmy and Naughty Leprechaun are both minty, but the second one seems like a grown up shamrock shake. The Green Daiquiri Punch looks fun as well. I will probably mix up the Bushmills Irish Buck for my husband. Last, but not least, there is the Japanese Slipper.
I hope this trip to the liquor store won’t cost as much as last month – many of the ingredients can be picked up on my weekly grocery run.
Liquor: Peach Schapps, Malibu Coconut Rum, Midori (or melon liqueur), Cointreau, Gin, Creme de Menthe, Bailey’s, Blue Curacao, Dekuyper Island Punch Pucker (or Maui Blue Hawaiian), Rum, Bushmills Whiskey
Groceries: pineapple juice, pineapple pieces (garnish), Lemon-lime soda (sprite/7up), maraschino cherries (garnish), lemon juice, lime juice, ginger ale, vanilla ice cream, milk, mint leaves (garnish), orange juice, frozen limeade, lime flavored gatorade
Oh, and I might shake things up a bit (no pun intended) by writing about baking – specifically skinny irish stout cupcakes that taste on par with the full-fat version.
