St. Paddy’s Day Fun
Here’s the latest news from our store. If you’re here for the cocktail recipes, skip straight to the end for how to make three St. Patrick’s Day themed drinks.
New Products and Sales
We are working hard to improve our liquor and wine selection, and have discontinued some items to make room for new choices. We chose some of our new products by listening to you, our regular customers. We ended up with extra bottles in great condition marked down to incredibly low prices.
Don’t forget to check our sales displays for discounted prices on bourbons, wines, and more. We have too many deals to fit on the display tables, so look for the orange dot on shelf price tags.
Hurry, these fantastic deals won’t last long!
Rose wine season is right around the corner, and we’ve got you covered. Our new rose section features several of the latest French imports, including Cloud Chaser ($18.99) and Fleur de Prairie ($16.99). Budget rose lovers should try 19 Crimes Rose ($8.99). Keep an eye on this section as the weather warms up.
Wines for Camping, Picnics, and More!
Yes, you read that correctly. Canned and miniature wines are all the rage right now. What better way to enjoy your favorite beverage at a picnic, outdoor festival, or while doing yard work?
Some of our favorite new travel-ready wines are Lolea Sangria minis (red, white, and rose, $3.99 each), Roscato Rosso cans ($3.99), and Barefoot hard seltzer cans ($1.99).
For those who want to picnic or camp in style, look no further than our pint-sized Josh Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay ($7.49 each).
St. Patrick’s Day Cocktails
It’s not all about the green beer. These recipes are for those of you who want to celebrate while avoiding the cliche. If you’re feeling really festive, pair these cocktails with Irish soda bread, Kerrygold cheddar cheese, potato skin nachos, or corned beef and cabbage.
The Irish Maid
This take on the Old Maid, a classic gin cocktail, is everything we like in a drink: it’s easy to make, it’s classy, and it packs a punch.
2 oz Jameson Whiskey (Caskmates or Black)
3 slices of cucumber
1/2 oz elderberry liquer (we use St.-Germain)
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 simple syrup
Drop two sliced of cucumber into a cocktail shaker and mash with a muddler.
Add whiskey, elderberry liqeur, lemon juice, simple syrup, and lots of ice.
Shake for 30 seconds. Your biceps should be sore after an adequate shaking–who knew bar tending was a workout?
Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice.
Garnish with a slice of fresh cucumber and serve.
Live the sweet life with this rich, dessert style martini. You can substitute any of Irish Cream for Bailey’s, or drink local with Black Button’s Bourbon Cream.
2 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
3/4 oz chocolate vodka (Pinnacle Whipped Chocolate or 360 Chocolate)
3/4 oz caramel vodka
Cocoa powder and mint leaves for garnish, if desired
Shake all the ingredients (except the garnish) together in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Remember the shaking tip from before? You want it to be icy cold at the end, so shake what your mama gave you!
Garnish with cocoa powder and mint leaves, and serve in a martini glass.
If you’re not feeling the more traditional whiskey and cream-based cocktails, try this sweet and sour drink made with Midori instead.
1 oz Midori
1 oz vodka
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
lime slice for garnish
Add all ingredients (except soda water and lime slice) into a Collins glass over ice and stir.
Top with soda water.
Garnish with a lemon slice, if desired.
Happy St. Paddy’s Day from all of us at Whitehouse!
