It’s crazy to think we are 2 months into 2019, the year is rolling on by! Sure, by now most of us have lost focus on our resolutions for the year. Life happens and you get distracted but, one thing we can all do to ensure that on December 31 we can look back on great memories made is to celebrate! Importantly, celebrate in new ways. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and although we do love a shamrock shake and seeing everyone rock shades of green, we’ve decided to honor St. Patrick in new ways!

Dine at Your Neighborhood Irish Pub

It will basically feel like your in Ireland once you have a Guinness in hand and a plate of Shepard’s Pie at the table.

Make St. Patrick’s Day Themed Cocktails

Beer doesn’t have to be the only beverage we celebrate with. Spruce Eats has a recipe for the most refreshing green drink, the Sparkling Shamrock.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 parts La Poire Flavored Vodka
1/2 part Elderflower Liqueur
2 parts juiced cucumber
1/2 part lemon juice
1/2 part simple syrup
Lemonade (or club soda, to taste)
Garnish: mint leaves
Garnish: cucumber slices

How to Make It:
In a cocktail shaker, mix all ingredients.
Shake vigorously and double strain.
Serve in a highball glass with ice and garnish with mint and cucumber slices.
Top with lemonade or club soda to taste.

Watch an Irish Movie

Cozy up on the couch with a film about Ireland like The Quiet Man. John Wayne plays a boxer who returns home to Ireland and falls in love. Grab the popcorn and Irish potatoes!

Give some of these new traditions a try and let us know what you think!
