Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

Celebrating St. Patrick's DayWho would have thought we would be celebrating our second St. Patrick’s Day at home? No pub crawls or Irish dancing this year. But, we have become inventive making celebrations—and here’s another opportunity to get creative for St. Patty’s Day.

The Menu
We have several really delicious recipes on our website to help you started.

Champ (Irish Potatoes)
No matter where you eat in Ireland, a bowl of champ is on the menu. And, it is delicious! Plus, there are so many variations on the dish. Here is the basic recipe for you to start with.

Beef and Guinness Stew
Nowadays the Guinness is used increasingly in cooking. It is a tasty addition to stews and casseroles, helping to tenderize the meat and imparting its distinctive malty flavor to any dish. This recipe makes a wonderful gutsy stew which tastes even better a day or two after it is made.

We have a choice of three cocktails to drink
The Emerald Cocktail
A great way to escape the green beer on St. Patrick’s Day. This version of The Emerald is quite enjoyable. It’s smooth, mellow, and improves with the quality of the whiskey.

Irish Coffee
A warm glass of Irish Coffee…it is such a simple recipe, but so satisfying to drink. We recommend freshly-brewed coffee and some decent whiskey.

Hot Chocolate with Guinness, Whiskey, and Baileys
Begin your weekend with this warming spiked Hot Chocolate with Guinness, Whiskey, and Baileys. So, this recipe has a couple more steps, but they are well worth the effort.

The Soundtrack
Hop over to Spotify for a variety of Irish music playlists to help set the mood—from medieval, to traditional, to rebellious, to punk.

The Entertainment
This list of Irish movies from the Oprah Magazine is the most comprehensive we have discovered. There has got to be something in it for everyone.

Or pop over the the Freight and Salvage’s website for a home streamed concert of The Black Brothers.
