The time I kissed an Italian on St. Patrick's Day...

A little over a year ago I was introduced to a very nice blonde italian man (which if any of you have met a blonde italian... you know that they are the best! hahaha ). We talked all night and hit it off quite well... A few weeks later I ran into him again at a bar St. Patrick's Day.  We were drinking green beer and listening to a local irish band (pretty much a cover band of flogging molly and The Dropkick Murphy's). He leaned in and kissed me right there at the bar... Things have been pretty much awesome ever since... 


So on the eve of St. Paddy's Day I am encouraging all the single girls to go get kissed tomorrow night 
... you never know where it is going to take you!

If you are taken... then plant a big one on your darling and in true irish tradition... 
remember how LUCKY you are!!



Whether single or taken... I highly recommend this cocktail!
The Irish Kiss

 2 pts Irish Whisky
1/2 part irish mist
1 part heavy cream
chocolate syrup (as much as you desire)
Chocolate shavings

Put all ingredients in a shaker 3/4 of the way full with ice... and shake shake shake. 
Pour into a chilled martini glass and garnish with chocolate shavings. 

So I hope everyone has a safe, happy and VERY lucky...


St. Paddy's Day!!
