We’re at it again! The gang from our Christmas cookie extravaganza is back together and today we’re each bringing you a St. Patrick’s Day cocktail so you can celebrate on the 17th! I have to say, I’m pretty partial to the edible golden ice cubes in our Irish Mule recipe, but you have to check out what the rest of the gang has been mixing up for you, too. Read on for our recipe and a full list of St. Patty’s day cocktails from all of our pals.
- Irish whiskey
- ginger beer
- edible gold leaf
- silicone ice cube trays (bonus points for fun shapes!)
Step 1: Make your golden ice cubes. For larger ice cube trays, place one sheet of gold at the bottom of each mold and gently fill with water. For smaller trays, fill with water first and place the gold sheets on top of the water so that the gold grabs on. Place trays in the freezer until thoroughly frozen.
Step 2: Once frozen, add a few golden ice cubes to a rocks glass. Over the ice, pour one oz. Irish whiskey. Fill with gingerbeer and squeeze in half a lime. Garnish with a lime wedge. As the ice melts, expect to see lots of golden flecks floating around in your cocktail!
Once you work your way through the Irish Mule, check out these other libations! xoxo
