There are saints, and then there’s St Patrick. Patron saint of Ireland, and the person we have to thank for all the fun activities done in his name and on his day.
The green pomp and colour, complete with tons of special foods, parades, dancing, and of course, drinking, make the festivities all the merrier.
This week’s cocktail, the Pot ‘O Gold cocktail, celebrates the rich Irish culture. The Irish whiskey – the signature liquor in this cocktail, is a favourite in Ireland and worldwide. Triple-distilled, it delivers an incredible smoothness, lending this Pot ‘O Gold cocktail its smooth, silky taste.
Enjoy this cocktail as you indulge in the rich Irish culture. From the traditional Irish music, The Leprechaun, to The Shamrock, and other green items, there’s much to learn and celebrate.
For instance, did you know that ‘Ol Saint Patrick was actually born in Britain? Irish raiders kidnapped him when he was 16 and sold him as a slave in Northern Ireland!
