This weekend, and all the way until Monday, there will be a lot of St. Patrick’s Day celebrating. No matter if you are hosting an Irish Pairti (That’s party in Irish) at home, or going out to your favorite Irish bar you’ll want to know about this very Lucky Leprechaun who is out to make your night even more festive. Keep reading for the recipe and a fun video I filmed with Boston Scarlette!
I live in Hoboken, NJ, and here, St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal. So much that we celebrate it on the first Saturday of the month with lots of green wearing, bar hopping and house parties that start as early as 10 am. That week, dating and food blog Boston Scarlette, reached out for us to collaborate in a fun video where I shared a St. Patrick’s Day cocktail recipe for the festivities on her very first episode of Boston Scarlette TV. So, that’s how the Lucky Leprechaun was found and brought to life for all of you to learn about it and try it for yourselves.
This St. Patrick’s Day cocktail recipe is simple enough to make at home for yourself or a group of people. (When making cocktails for a crowd my suggestion is always to pre-mix it and have it in a container or drink dispenser for self-serving.) It is also simple enough for you to order it at your local bar without having the bartenders roll their eyes at you before reaching for their shaker.
Boston Scarlette and I both loved the cocktail. It has that festive green color and the taste is deliciously sweet thanks to the surprising good combo that coconut rum and melon liqueur make, but enough of my ramblings. Check out the flirtalicious video and recipe below. Have a great St. Patrick’s weekend and slainte!
