March 16 enjoy Irish Traditional Music at FOO(D) & The Bar at AS220. The folks from Devine’s Diner will host this popular session at AS220 on Saturdays from 4-7 pm. Come downtown for dinner at the cafe or just grab a drink and listen to the tunes.
If you’re planning a private shindig try these cocktails. Eno has all the options you’d ever want and is our top choice for St. Patrick’s Day cheer.
Green Whiskey Smash
1/2 lime, cut into small wedges
1/4 cup diced cucumber
5 sprigs fresh mint, plus more for garnish
2 ounces whiskey
4 ounces cold limeade (I like Newman’s or Simply Limeade)
Combine the lime, cucumber and mint in the bottom of a glass and muddle to release the juices. Fill the glass with ice and pour in whiskey. Top off with limeade. Garnish with fresh mint and a wedge of lime or cucumber wheel. Can also be multiplied and served as a punch.
Irish Coffee Recipe
1.5 ounces Jameson Irish Whiskey
1 ounce brown sugar syrup (one part brown sugar and one part water)
Hot brewed coffee
Unsweetened cream, lightly whipped garnish
Add the whiskey and syrup to an Irish coffee glass and fill two-thirds of the way with coffee. Top with one inch of whipped cream.
The Irish Julep
1.5 ounces of Jameson Irish Whiskey
¼ ounce of Averna Amaro
½ ounce of simple syrup
6 mint leaves
1 mint sprig
1/2 ounce of water
Muddle mint leaves, simple syrup, and water in a highball glass.
Add crushed ice and Jameson Irish Whiskey
Float Averna Amaro on top and garnish with mint sprig.
Have a great time and drink responsibly. Hope your weekend is filled with the luck of the Irish!
