Leprechaun's Dream





Happy 3 days before St. Patrick's Day!  


You'll never believe what's happened this week.  Our youngest got a fever and ear infection..........yes......again.  Poor baby.  I feel so bad for her when she's sick.  My ultimate plan was to do a number of St. Patty's Day cocktails ahead of time and now we are 3 days away.  Yikes!  There goes my plan.  Better late then never.


Today I creates a cocktail I call Leprechaun's Dream.  


This cocktail is a little bit greener then the picture gives it credit for.  


This is a light, yummy and a bit too easy to gulp down St. Patty's cocktails.....especially on a hot day like today (yes we have odd weather here...it's totally hot out).


My plan is to get you more cocktails in the next couple days and then hopefully a round up of all of my St. Patty's Day cocktails at the end.  


Fingers crossed I can pull it all off.  Between nurturing a sick one, a possible birthday party on Saturday and a baseball game......(why did I have to list them all out....I'm already tired just thinking about it all) wish me luck!!



Here is my Leprechaun's Dream:

  • 1 1/2 ounces coconut rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces pineapple orange banana juice
  • 1 ounce melon liqueur
Fill up a cocktail glass with ice.  Dump the ice and all three of your ingredients above into a shaker.  Shake gently as to not break up the ice.  Dump everything back into your glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to finally having a second to make a cocktail and share it with you all!

Cheers!!

  1. Hope your young'n is feeling better soon! I'm going to get some of that juice - maybe this cocktail will give me a new appreciation for Midori :)

    1. Thank You Jan! I hope it does. Midori in the smaller proportions is better in general I think.
