St. Paddy’s Day Irish Rose Cocktail #weekendcooking @BethFishReads

We’re having our corned beef and cabbage dinner tonight, but we got a headstart on our St. Paddy’s Day weekend with these Irish Rose cocktails last night.

two Irish Rose cocktails garnished with slices of limeI found the recipe on Real Simple. They’re supposed to be garnished with maraschino cherries, too, but we didn’t have any. We had a few different Irish whiskeys to choose from; I used Jameson’s because it was the first open one that came to hand.

I was in a hurry to sit down and watch the new show I found to take the place of Psych.  It’s called Chuck — a spoofy spy show with male and female nerds, a little romance, and a good amount of laughs.

ChuckI had never heard of it before, but found it mentioned here and there as a recommendation for shows like Psych. (Which we finished watching months ago, but I still missed it; it was such a fun antidote to all the dark stuff we’d been watching.) PsychSo far, the show isn’t as funny as Psych, but we’ve only just started the first season, and I’m enjoying it!

Happy Weekend Cooking!

  1. Your lime slices were more in the “green theme” anyway, and a much nicer contrast to the pink drink. I brined my brisket and had it with a glass of red wine.

    1. Sounds good! I ended up not trying any of my Crock Pot St. Patrick’s Day recipes. Our dinner has been cooking in a low oven all afternoon and smells delicious right now!
