St. Patrick’s Day is today, and it’s the perfect time to break out your green attire, and celebrate the Irish spirit of fun and tradition!
Why not celebrate this holiday with a traditional Irish-themed party for friends and loved ones? With a little effort, your party will be a memorable event featuring delicious Irish food and drinks.
There are simple baked treats like Irish soda bread or scones. If you’re a little more ambitious, Irish pub foods like corned beef and cabbage, Irish stew, or shepherd’s pie are always a big hit. And you can always make green cookies or cupcakes with a bit of food coloring.
On the liquid side of things, options range from the sublime (Irish whiskey) to the ridiculous (green beer). Or you can try your hand at making a variety of Irish-themed drinks – Everybody’s Irish, the Irish Martini, or Irish Eyes. (If you serve drinks with green coloring, make sure you protect rugs and furniture from spills… otherwise you’ll have green everywhere!)
A St Patrick’s Day blast is also an excuse to step up the bar in your basement! In honor of the occasion, install a Kegerator or a beer cellar. (A steady stream of Guinness would not go amiss.)
However you celebrate, remember to raise a toast by saying “Sláinte!” (Cheers in Gaelic), and to express your love for the Emerald Isle with a hearty “Érin go Brágh!” (Ireland Forever in Gaelic.)
