Irish Martini



MARTINI! mmm! This is just in case you were looking for something to turn that Monday-frown upside down!

Hi HEY, Shams! <—Irish talk.
It’s heeeere! St. Paddy’s is just one day awaaaaay! I may be the most excited non-Irish person in the natiiiion!

This is when I become Katherine, instead of Katerina. My last name also gets a makeover with a big “O” in the front, OR an “Mc”. I think Mc fits me better, though. McPetrovska. Ain’t that beautiful!?

What’s more beautiful is this: booze and coffee. In one. ♥

Back in my days, when I lived in Chicago, St. Pat’s Day meant hitting every Irish Pub throughout the city, drinking all the beer possible, eating something with beer IN it, and watching the Chicago River turn green. If you haven’t been, book your trip for next year – it’s an awesome time!

As I got older and more sophisticated – choke… cough…. cry!! – so did my taste buds. Can’t be a college partier your whole life. I guess...

Thus, one fine St. Patrick’s Day, instead of ordering an Irish Car Bomb, I asked the bartender for an Irish Martini. MARTINI! I had never tried a Martini before that.
Long story short, I HATED IT! I thought the inside of my mouth was on fire. Blah!

But, going back to that whole getting older thing, I now LOVE it!

This Martini is like the triple threat, you guys! Coffee + Booze + Irish Cream. Heavens!

Sometimes, even my husband asks for me to make him one. As “girly” as he says that this drink is, he sure knows how to down a couple without a blink. Besides, paired up with a Baileys Fudge Brownie, how could anyone turn this drink down?!

    Booze and coffee in a cocktail? Oh, heck yes! I’m totally down for this, even though I have no Irish blood in my veins.
