They say that on St Patrick’s Day everyone is Irish, but that doesn’t mean one has to be limited to a dry soda scone or a wee shot of whiskey. Why not try, instead, a green cocktail made with a clear bright vodka crafted from either wheat or potatoes – both traditional in Irish cuisine.
Daniel Seelbinder at Exclusiv Vodka has created just such a cocktail and it’s truly worthy of the day:
SAINT PAT’S-TINI COCKTAIL
- Shake first three ingredients in a martini shaker.
- Pour into a chilled martini glass.
- Slowly pour in Green Creme de Menthe.
- Garnish with a mint leaf and chocolate shavings.
Enjoy your 'drinking-of-the-green'! Saint Patty would so approve!
