I always look forward to St. Patrick’s Day because it’s the only day of the year I have corned beef. 😉 Hubby doesn’t care for corned beef or cabbage, so I usually go to a local Irish pub and have some dinner. This year, I was being adventurous and thought the kids might be interested in having corned beef with me.
So I threw corned beef, potatoes and carrots (and beer) in a Crock Pot. Yes, I totally forgot to add the cabbage. So I went searching for an Irish recipe using cabbage. I found a Colcannon recipe from Money Savvy Michelle. The recipe is for what I’ll call Irish Mashed Potatoes, because basically that’s what it is. Yummy, Irish goodness.
Dinner was great and I’ll definitely be making the Colcannon again, I made a few changes and I’ll share those with you in another post.
Let’s get back to the reason for this post! I want to tell you about my cocktail of the evening. I found a recipe on the booklet attached to my bottle of Midori. It was in the liquor cabinet and it’s green for St. Patty’s Day.
Fuzzy Chartreuse Recipe
- 3 shots of Midori Liqueur
- Ginger Ale
Fill glass half full with ice. Add Midori and fill the glass with ginger ale. Stir to mix. It’s called the Fuzzy Chartreuse because the color is sort of a chartreuse after it’s mixed up.
I’ve got to say, it’s a little sweet, but the ginger ale balances out the Midori and it makes for a nice St. Patrick’s Day drink. Enjoy!
