The Herradura "Green Agave Cocktail"
Well, Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge doesn't have one lick of Irish in me that I am aware of , but hopefully I can enjoy some luck o' the Irish today as everyone gets to be green on St. Paddy's Day. Perhaps a good day to try some at the "Megabucks" machine later?:)
But, If this is your day, by birth, marriage, or by hook & crook...then hope you have a great one.
If you feel like starting off with something a bit more sophisticated before you hit the green draft, check out this very cool & festive cocktail I found in a post from Kori Ellis titled "More than just Green Beer" at She Knows.com (great living/lifestyle blog by the way!)
The cocktail, all decked out for the holiday, is called a "Herradura (that's a brand of Tequila) "Green Agave Cocktail" shaken with melon liqueur. Yummy! I love how how it's garnished with a lime carved to look like a lucky shamrock. How stylish is that?
Not only a great idea for St. Paddy's day, but for a modern touch for an Irish wedding as well.
- 1 1/2 oz. Herradura Silver tequila
- 3/4 oz. melon liqueur
- Add tequila, melon liqueur and a squeeze of lime into a shaker with ice.
- Shake for 15 seconds.
- Pour into a chilled cocktail glass.
- Garnish with shamrock carved lime and serve.
This same post also offers some recipes for spin-offs on the cocktail called "Emerald Isle" (naturally) & an "Irish Whip".
So I'll raise me a fancy green cocktail & wish you all a happy day. Have fun and stay safe!
