The Best Corned Beef Dinner Ever

Saint Patrick’s Day is coming. Time for too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ra-ing about Molly Malone, Danny Boy and my Wild Irish Rose. Time for dancing a jig while not spilling a drop. Time for decking out in shades of forest, emerald, mint and moss. For celebrating my freckles and green eyes while lamenting my lack of red-headedness. And the most glorious of all, time for every grocery store from sea-to-shining sea to suddenly stock up on corned beef. This Saint Patrick’s Day, be the lord of the manor with this absolutely perfect, not a hint of dry meat anywhere, corned beef dinner. Made in a crock pot, this scrumptious classic will fill your home with rich mouth-watering aromas, and keep you laughing, singing and toasting with your friends and family instead of slaving over a hot stove.

Lucky Leprechaun St. Patrick’s Day Drink

If you are looking for something to put a little jig in your step and are not the Irish Whiskey or Guinness drinking type, may I suggest this delicious and delightfully festive St. Patrick’s Day drink? It’s bright emerald color is perfect for all your Irish gatherings. It packs a wallop of gladness and is guaranteed to make you feel as though you’d found the end of the rainbow. I call it the Lucky Leprechaun.

Gorgeous right? Here’s how to make it. Combine equal parts Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum, Malibu Coconut Rum, Midori Melon Liquor and Blue Curacao Liquor with a splash of pineapple juice in a cocktail shaker over ice. Shake to combine, then serve in an old-fashioned glass. Or, if you’d prefer, a highball glass filled with ice and garnished with a little wedge of pineapple/cherry and an umbrella. But on St. Patrick’s Day, you are going to probably be opting for the less high maintenance version. Just sayin. You can also make this a shot. Same ingredients. Pour into shot glasses and throw one back shouting “Kiss me I’m Irish!”. Cheers!
