Welcome to another installment of The Month of Shamrocks!
My BFF / Shamrock opponent Krista Newport (does this make her a frenemy?) posted a delicious looking DIY Shamrock Shake today. Who doesn’t love shakes AND girl scout cookies? Well played Krista, well played. I will accept her frosty treat and raise her an alcoholic beverage!
Behold the glory of an Irish Mojito! I too found this on Pinterest (my addiction) and here so I thought I would share the Irish love.
2 ounces Irish whiskey
1 ounce lemon or lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup
1 kiwi (chopped)
20 mint leaves
Combine lemon/lime juice, simple syrup, kiwi and mint leaves in a highball glass. Next muddle ingredients together. Next add whiskey and stir. Add crushed ice and top off with club soda. Garnish with a four leaf clover!
