Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day sipping, here are recipes for two festive cocktails, courtesy of Jessica Christensen, mixologist for Rohnert Park’s Graton Resort & Casino‘s lounges and bars (Sky Lounge, G Bar, Lobby Bar, Pool Bar, 8 Bar and 630 Park Bar).
1 oz. Stolichnaya Vanilla vodka
½ oz. Crème de Banana
½ oz. Midori
1 oz. Pineapple juice
1 oz. Aquafaba
Crushed Lucky Charms
Prepare a Collins glass by using the back of a spoon to create a swirl of marshmallow crème inside the glass, then use it to rim the glass and dip it into crushed Lucky Charms. Add all your ingredients into a shaker tin with ice and shake for about 20 seconds to ensure it creates enough foam. Strain over fresh ice, and garnish with a light sprinkle of crushed Lucky Charms.
Irish Espresso Martini
1 oz. Jameson Irish Whiskey
1 oz. Borghetti di Vero Café Espresso Liqueur
1 oz. Guinness Draught Stout
3 drops Angostura Aromatic Bitters
Shake all ingredients with ice, excluding the Guinness, for about 20 seconds to ensure it creates enough foam. Strain into a coupe glass and slowly pour in your Guinness. Garnish with espresso beans, three drops of bitters and edible gold dust.
