Happy Sunday My Friends!
This year we have had a very mild winter here in Chicago, and I feel like Spring is right around the corner. What a Spring spirited kick-off way to celebrate this lovely weather with the fun and fresh green celebration of St.Patrick's Day (Thursday, March 17th, 2016)! It is a pretty fun day to celebrate whether you are Irish or not as we dress up in green, put a sparkling shamrocks on our faces, drink green beer, enjoy Irish whiskey, and eat green color sweets. We all enjoy in this fun celebration!
Here in Chicago, we’ll celebrate this St.Patrick day with the dyeing of the Chicago River in green. This has become a traditional St.Patrick's day celebration here full of cookies, cupcakes, sweet treats in green, and various green drinks to chose from.
Here I have a fun cocktail and cupcake recipe to share with you all...
- Floral Citrus Cocktail with Grapefruit, Orange, Elderflower, and Rosemary. This recipe is bright and has lovely strong citrus notes with a hint of rosemary and elderflower liqueur garnished with fresh rosemary (not a shamrock but it is green nonetheless).
- St.Patick's day cupcake collection
This is a Red Velvet cupcake topped with creamy vanilla frosting and decorated with mint colored candy pearls and holiday green candy decorations.
Hope you all enjoy your St.Patrick's Day celebrations, and be safe.

"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. That's the burden.Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us" Bones
