A little luck of the Irish on Eye Opener is what we had today as we raised a glass in honor of Saint Patrick’s Day! Also known as the Feast of Saint Patrick dating back to the seventeenth century the day is a cultural and religious holiday commemorating Saint Patrick and Irish culture and heritage.
And, this day that ushers in a sea green, shamrocks and good luck also brought a celebration of fine Irish whiskey to the show this morning. Dustin Best from Fine Wine & Good Spirits shook things up with two cocktails – the “Peachy Shamrock,” and with an eye on spring he made an “Irish Honey Lemonade.”
Check out our video to see the celebration that uses some of the classic Irish whiskeys including Jameson and Bushmills that are still being distilled in Ireland to this very day. Happy St. Patty’s Day!
