Happy Paddy's Day! Celebrate with a Smirnoff Irish Shamrock




Happy St Patrick’s Day! Guinness might be the preferred drink for this most Irish of holidays across the globe, and I like a pint of the black stuff as much as the next person (unless that next person is my friend Mark, because nobody likes a Guinness as much as he does), but I’m also partial to something long and fruity, preferably with an umbrella in. So I was delighted to hear about the Smirnoff Irish Shamrock, a special Paddy’s Day cocktail that’s easy to make – and drink!


You’ll need:
  • 50 ml Smirnoff Lime
  • 1 chopped lime (16 pieces)
  • 20 ml sugar cane syrup
  • Crushed ice

Method:
  • Muddle limes & sugar cane syrup in base of highball glass
  • Fill glass with crushed ice   
  • Add vodka and stir thoroughly
  • Retop with crushed ice and garnish with lime wedge & straw

Will you be trying this one at home? What’s your favourite Paddy’s Day tipple?

Karen, heh, we're probably safe with a green drink if we wear a nice green top! The trouble is I don't think I own a nice green top...

Laura, doesn't it sound delish? Enjoy!

I used to enjoy drinking beer, but over the years - seems a little too filling. This drink looks perfect :) Cheers!

Oh, that looks so refreshing. It makes me sad that I don't have any limes in the house. I found and followed your blog through the blog hop. Cant wait to see more.

That sounds amazing- definitely more of a vodka than a Guinness girl! It's not too late for me to try this :)
