Hump Day Happy Hour
Get the Luck O' the Irish with this St. Paddy's Day DrinkBy Julie Fishman
Bust out that shamrock necklace, tattoo the Erin Go Braugh flag on your forehead, and wear head-to-toe green, because everyone's Irish tomorrow. Before heading to the pub for corned beef and cabbage, treat yourself to a drinkable pot of gold with this week's St. Patrick's Day cocktail.
A mint-flavored frappe that packs an alcoholic St. Paddy's Day punch, “The Frozen Grasshopper” puts McDonald's green shake to shame. Created by the mixologists at Holsteins, this emerald intoxicant is guaranteed to make you feel like you've got the luck o' the Irish on your side.
Cheers to The Emerald Isle, and thank your lucky charms for a bagpipes-and-booze-filled holiday that makes us all bleed green for a day.
