Cocktail Recipe Du Jour

Happy St. Patrick's Day! (How do I look as a redhead?)

Here's a special treat for you, called Emerald Isle. It's a minty gin cocktail and the perfect green drink for the day. A dash or two of bitters does help the drink considerably. While aromatic bitters are customary, mint bitters is an equally nice compliment, and if you're feeling a little wild, orange bitters are quite interesting.

* 1 oz gin
* 1 tsp crème de menthe, green
* 2 dashes bitters

1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes.
2. Shake well.
3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Bottoms up! (And ready for pinching!)
