St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and here in Chicago, people tend to make a weekend of it. The Chicago river gets dyed a neon green that reminds me of ectoplasm.

There are parades and entire neighborhoods become a sea of party revelers in the streets, dressed in green. All of this goes on, and I usually sit out and watch from the sidelines.

I am more of a celebrate-at-home kind of girl. When some folks from Reeds Ginger Brew asked if I would like some samples of their ginger beers, I said, “Sure!” So just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, and the Chicago weekend of celebrations, I’ve got a new cocktail for you.

Blarney Stone Cocktail

One of our favorites drinks is the Moscow Mule. It’s simple to make but super delicious. Perfect right?

Another reason it is so great is it is easy to modify with different types of alcohol. I’ve demonstrated this already with my Kentucky Mule, and now I’ve got a Blarney Stone for you.

The Blarney Stone replaces the vodka with one of my favorite’s, Irish whiskey. I usually choose Powers or Jameson, but use whichever is your favorite. Add fresh lime juice and ginger beer and you are good to go.

Reeds sent me a number of different flavored ginger beers and if you buy some of those, you can do a flavored Blarney Stone without having to juice fruit. I love it when you can eliminate a step.

I could really really use one of these right now. Performing long overdue tech upgrades (to my computer, not blog) and hit a rather massive snag. It will get resolved but, in the meantime, one of these babies would really help. Thanks for linking up at #SaucySaturdays.
