Create These St.Patrick’s Day Cocktail Recipes While Watching the Virtual Parade at Home
As we continue to adapt during COVID-19 this year, we know we can still experience the festivities and traditions surrounding St. Patrick’s Day, just in a different setting. Seeing as this year’s NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be held virtually, we will enjoy from the comfort of our home. We have selected some fun St.Patrick’s Day cocktail recipes designed for home entertaining. And since SPD falls right in the middle of the week, celebrations will probably be held over the weekend. From Irish Whiskey and Gin, to spirits involving vodka and tequila, these cocktail recipes will pair well with Corned Beef Sliders, Shepherd’s Pie, and that Irish Soda Bread you’ve mastered during lockdown.
