This St. Patrick's Day we have a way to enjoy a drink and still be festive! We bring you a St. Patrick's Day Martini called Melontini. A Melontini is a great alternative to traditional drinks this Holiday.
St. Patrick's Day is a nightmare for non-beer drinkers. I mean, maybe it's not a nightmare, more of an inconvenience. You go out on St. Paddy's Day and try ordering anything other than beer.
The funny looks you'll get! Not to mention even more funny looks because you're not wearing green. People around here take it personally.
I'm sorry, but I'm not Irish! Do not kiss me, and do not even think about pinching me! However, this year I'm trying to fit in and I'm doing it with this green martini -Melontini.
As the name suggests, melontini is made with a splash of melon liqueur. Weirdly, I love everything melon-flavored but I don't like melons. Just call me the St. Patrick's Day Grinch, mmmkay?
The closest to anything Irish I am is that I live in midst of Fighting Irish city - Notre Dame University. Honestly, for almost twenty years living here, I have not once been to a single game.
Tailgating is as far as I'll go. I mean, I have nothing against the team or Irish, it's just that I do not understand football and have no desire to learn the rules.
But, we can talk soccer all you want. And even more, we can talk about it over this super green St. Patrick's Day martini. I'll even cook something Irish for you.
How to make St. Patrick's Day Martini - Melontini:
By the way, are you a beer drinker? Do you mind when someone takes a sip of beer from your glass (or bottle)? To tell the truth I have this thing where I always take the first sip of my husband's drink.
He's so trained by now, he comes to find me if I'm not near him when he pours himself a drink. He's a keeper!
In any case, how do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day? In short, what do you cook, and most importantly, what do you drink? Just remember, if you're going out - drink responsibly! Happy St. Patrick's Day! Cheers!
