Boozy Irish Coffee Milkshakes

Boozy Irish Coffee Milkshakes

At our favorite Irish pub here in town, they serve an Irish coffee that is the stuff that warms the soul on a cold winter day. Dark, rich coffee steaming hot with big splashes of whiskey and Irish cream. Topped with whipped cream and a little dusting of cinnamon, it’s basically dessert meets cocktail meets some kind of heaven. Is Ireland heaven after all? It may just be, friends, it may just be. Today I’m serving up a frothy, thick …

17 St. Patrick’s Day Desserts Made with Lucky Charms

Friends, it’s St. Patrick’s Day week! In addition to making this super cute DIY sequin shamrock shirt to sport the requisite green come Friday, you should also probably consider eating an overload of Lucky Charms. Because it seems like everyone else is doing it, so why not us? In all seriousness though, I kind of love this trend of adding Lucky Charms to basically any and everything to create the most festive of St. Patrick’s Day desserts and treats. Sometimes …

Black Velvet Cocktails for St. Patrick’s Day

Black Velvet Cocktails for St. Patrick’s Day

I had my first Irish car bomb in college, as I’m sure many of us did. Let’s be real classy here for a second and allow me to admit that I love a good Irish car bomb. If you’re not familiar, a car bomb is essentially a shot of 50/50 whiskey and Irish cream that is dropped into a pint of Guinness and chugged straight down. While not very dainty, they are actually seriously delicious. Enter the Black Velvet. It’s …

17 Ways to Get Your Guinness Fix

In case you blinked and missed it, today marks the start of March! We’re just over two weeks out from St. Patrick’s Day, which means it’s officially fair game to start talking about all things green and stocking the fridge with the requisite supply of Guinness. Speaking of Guinness, have you seen the number of ways the genius people of the internet are working stout into everything from cupcakes to brownies to beer nuts? It’s true and it’s so so …

12 Must-Try St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

I’m pretty sure we just stopped crafting Christmas ornaments and somehow, we’re creeping up on St. Patrick’s Day. Is anyone else feeling that way? Luckily, I love St. Patrick’s Day if for no other reason than it means that spring is near. Also, Irish coffee. No complaints there. I’ve gotten a few requests already for a round-up of St. Patrick’s day recipes and cocktails, which tells me that we’re all starting to think about our annual Guinness binge fest. Ask …

6 Festive Last Minute St. Patrick’s Day Ideas

6 Festive Last Minute St. Patrick’s Day Ideas

I’m going to be that annoying person who waxes poetic along the lines of, “I can’t believe March is already half over!” this morning, because seriously. I can’t believe March is already half over. How on earth is it St. Patrick’s Day already tomorrow? While I know most of the big celebrations and parties happened over this past weekend, I’m personally always the type who likes to celebrate in a slightly scaled back, simpler way on the actual day itself. …

DIY Sequin Shamrock Shirt

DIY Sequin Shamrock Shirt

An alternate title for this post could be, “Isn’t My Best Friend Super Pretty?” or “That Time I Finally Made a Sequin Shamrock Shirt.” In all seriousness, this is a project I had on my list of things to do last year before St. Patrick’s Day, but then we moved at the beginning of March and life got crazy for a while and it just didn’t happen in time to make the cut. (As it goes when you move, right?) …

Color Palette: Clover + Hellebore

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! Is everyone donning your favorite green attire today? We celebrated the occasion on Saturday over dinner with friends and you can be sure I was rockin’ my favorite green dress. So today it would be completely inappropriate to have anything but a color palette full of Irish greens. Clover, hellebore and vine, oh my. In honor of today, I thought I’d share my favorite Irish blessing with you.

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up next week, ain’t no doubt a whole lot of us are thinking about picking up a bottle of Irish cream in the next few days. From sipping it on the rocks to mixing up a classic Irish coffee, I always make a point to slip into the liquor store and leave with a paper bag holding a bottle of that yummy goodness this time of year. But what about Irish cream cupcakes? Or Irish …
