St. Paddy’s Day arrives just as Winter is loosening its grasp, and having survived it, we all look toward Spring, thinking a little luck may be in order. Here’s a gilded cocktail to raise in celebration; even if we didn’t get the whole pot of gold, at least we’ve got each other.

To an iced shaker, add:

3 ounces Irish whiskey (we prefer Bushmills – http://www.bushmills.com)
1/2 ounce Goldschläger
1 1/2 ounces freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice
1 dash Angostura bitters
Pinch edible gold powder

Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with another pinch of edible gold powder on the surface of the drink.

Slàinte!

Always drink responsibly; always drink well.
