Looking for some fun ideas to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with your girlfriends? You're in luck! With help from The DC Ladies we have found some creative ways to cherish the evening without having to guzzle the Guinness.
Pot of Gold Cocktail
(makes 8 servings)
- 24 lemon rind (strips)
- 8 tbsps limoncello (liqueur)
- 4 tsps fresh lemon juice
- 750 ml champagne (brut, chilled)
Roll up each strip of lemon rind; place 1 into each of 8 Champagne flutes. Add 1 tablespoon liqueur and 1/2 teaspoon juice to each glass. Divide Champagne evenly among glasses. Serve immediately.
A sugared rim is a pretty touch—rub a cut lemon wedge on the rim of the glass, and roll in sugar. You don’t need to purchase expensive Champagne for this cocktail; just be sure to use brut, the driest Champagne, or a dry cava or prosecco.
After the drinks have been made and table has been decorated, head to Georgetown and visit Olivia Macaron, whose pastry chef makes some very tasty Salted Caramel Vanilla and Irish Cream macaron’s to kick off the holiday! The ingredients of these delicate little treats are a mystery, but they are worth the calories for an extra special celebration!
If macarons aren’t your thing then consider Audra's (otherwise known as the Baker Chick), Bailey’s Guinness Cupcake recipe! She shares her special recipe on how she creates her chocolate Guinness cupcakes using her special Bailey’s Irish Cream cheese icing!
You knew that with it being St. Patty’s Day Guinness wasn’t to be left out completely.
Enjoy your St. Patty's Day responsibily!
It's our turn.
