How about shots? When is the last time you were at a party that served a creative and tasty shot? Not a jello shot, although we have nothing against them, but a real shot that is something besides tequila, salt and a lime?

Hemingway Daiquiri Recipe

Hemingway Daiquiri

I’m going old school for the Oscars tonight and making Hemingway Daiquiris.  I thought of these because the grapefruit are ready on my tree and I’m tired of wine for every occasion.  This refreshing cocktail reportedly got its name because it was Ernest Hemingway’s drink of choice at La Floridita, a famous Havana bar.

It’s been years since I’ve had a classic daiquiri (lime juice, sugar, and white rum), and a Hemingway adds grapefruit juice and maraschino liquor instead of sugar. This great little cocktail will give you a little pick up.

  • 6 ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3 ounces white rum
  • 1 ounce maraschino liquor (I have left this out and added Stevia or sugar to sweeten and it’s still fabulous)

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake until combined, strain into your favorite cocktail glass. Garnish with either grapefruit or lime slice.

How to Make Green Beer for St. Patrick’s Day

How to Make Green Beer for St. Patrick's Day

Green beer on St. Patrick’s Day! All the pubs will be serving it, but if you decide to have your own party, how do you make your beer green for St. Patrick’s Day?

  • To turn beer green, you can use either blue or green food coloring
  • For a shamrock green beer color, use blue dye, especially if you are serving light or yellow beers
  • For a bright lime green beer color, use green food dye
  • If you’re not sure what color to use, food coloring is inexpensive, so you can buy both colors and experiment to get the color you want for the party
  • No stirring will be required if you add 2-3 drops of dye to the bottom of your mug before you pour the beer
  • For kegs, it’s almost impossible to dye the beer in the keg, so you should put the dye in each cup as you pour each beer (designate one person to control the dye so it doesn’t end up where you don’t want it)
  • Be careful with the dye as it can color more than your beer if you’re not careful

13 million pints of Guinness are served on St. Patrick’s Day, more than double a normal day. What beer will you be serving?
