Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

Cupcakes

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

As today is a Tuesday, and I’m at work, I probably won’t get much chance to celebrate, but after seeing my lovely friend BuBakes‘ fabulous cupcakes inspired by today I had to whip up a quick green cocktail to accompany them. It is known as the Tequila Mockingbird, and is a feisty little number, not to everyone’s taste, but it’s a fantastic colour and an intriguing little sipper:

Ingredients

  • 40ml Gold Tequila
  • 20ml Creme de Menthe
  • 30ml Lime Juice

Method Shake all ingredients with some hard ice, and strain into a small Martini glass. If you have a sprig of fresh mint to place on the side, all the better! Serve, ideally, with fabulous cupcakes. St. Patrick's Day LizBu makes amazing cupcakes and celebration cakes for every occasion, and I have been lucky enough to try them on a few occasions. They are as delicious as they are beautiful, so make sure you check them out. Her St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes above are amazing and the picture doesn’t do them justice. Whatever your plans for today, remember to enjoy (responsibly) x
