For the link up you posted about an "Irish" or "St. Pat's Day" recipe and linked it up. Then you got paired up with another bloggers recipe where you got to make theirs! Then we are posting about our recipe/experience. I made Irish Soda Bread for the recipe I shared. If you haven't tried it yet - go do it now. You will thank me I am sure!
I was paired up with Jamie Lynn from Cocktails & Carseats for her Green Irishman!
I am not much of a drinker. Now don't get me wrong but I am what many might consider "dry". I partied it up in college and then I graduated and got married. With our hopes and plans to start a family right away I gave up alcohol. And since we have been having difficulty on that front I have chosen to abstain from it pretty much altogether. I am not much of a wine drinker - never have been and probably never will be, I personally find it pretty gross. I will have the occasional beer but my drink of choice is probably a Mojito. I have those on very rare occasions, like once a year.
Let me say that I am NOT a prude, others can drink and that is totally fine with me! I just choose not to. Sometimes I will have a drink - usually during my period since I can guarantee at that time I am not pregnant. But that is a rarity.
With all that being said, we don't have a whole lot of hard alcohol in our house and I wasn't really wanting to go out and buy a few fifths of the needed ingredients so mine is a modified drink. I was able to get a shooter of Baileys, had some whipping cream on hand, and to make it green I used a little food coloring. It tasted great, probably not as good as Jamie's but I liked it!
1.5 oz Irish whiskey
1.5 oz Bailey's Irish cream
1 oz half & half
Splash of creme de menthe
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and then add the ingredients. Shake until the whole shaker gets frosty and pour into rocks glass with ice. Enjoy!
