Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend? Make sure to celebrate in style! Whether you’re participating in a St. Patty’s day parade or hosting fellow “leprechauns” at your residence, Cascade Ice has created two cocktails that’ll have you ready for this weekend’s festivities.
Cheers to St. Patrick’s Day with a “Kiss Me I’m Irish” Tini! Fill a 16oz martini shaker halfway with ice and add 2oz of your favorite vodka. Drop in a few small green apple wedges. Lastly, pour in 4oz Cascade Ice Zero-Calorie Apple Tini Mixer and gently stir. Pour into a martini glass and enjoy! To add some extra flair, dip the rim of your martini glass in cold water and dab on green sugar sprinkles!
The Shamrockin’ Mojito is a definite must-try and very simple to make. Start with a frosted glass filled 1/3 of the way with ice. Add in muddled fresh mint leaves. Fill the glass with 2oz of light rum and 4oz Cascade Ice Zero-Calorie Mojito Mixer. Rim the glass with fresh limes and you’re good to go! Want a non-alcoholic beverage to serve? No problem – leave out the rum and you’ve still got a full-flavored, tasty drink to serve.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!
