    Sunday is St Patrick's Day

    What are we lining up for St. Paddy's day? I have Redbreast CS and had the wife pick up a Jameson 12. I'm thinking corn beef and red potatoes what say ye?

    Corned beef certainly, and some Powers if I can find any during the week.

    I have a few bottles of Irish open, but I may crack open my Powers 12 Yr that I haven't gotten around to yet. Otherwise, probably some Jameson Black Barrel, Bushmill's Black Bush or Michael Collins 10 Yr Single Malt.

    Re: Sunday is St Patrick's Day

    In addition to the corned beef and cabbage we are going to celebrate the Irish side of my family ancestry by having a few friends over and add a few other appetizers as well as three Irish whiskey cocktails I am lifting from the 2011 issue of Imbibe magazine about Irish Whiskey.

    And of course I am going to open up the liquor cabinet and share a bit from the pot of gold! That will include:

    Bushmills Black Bush, Bushmills White label, Concannon Petite Syrah finished whiskey, Greenore 8 year old Single Grain, Greenore 15 year old Single Grain, Jameson 12 year old Special Reserve, Redbreast Single Pot Still 12 year old, Redbreast Single Pot Still 12 year old Cask Strength, Redbreast Single Pot Still 15 year old, Green Spot Single Pot Still NAS, Yellow Spot Single Pot Still 12 year old, The Irishman Cask Strength 2010 112 proof, The Irishman Original Clan, The Irishman Single Malt, Powers John’s Lane Single Pot Still 12 year old and Tullamore Dew Special Reserve 12 year old.

    Had hoped to get some Poitín/Poteen but could find any in the US that was readily available.

    And for those I know can appreciate it I may bring out the Midleton Very Rare 2012, Barry Crockett Legacy Blended Single Pot Still and Bushmills 21 year old Single Malt for a wee taste.

    Should be fun!

    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I'm not a corned beef and cabbage guy, but Redbreast 15 is definately on the menu

    Traditional corned beef brisket,cabbage and potatoes followed up by a RB12 and 15 I believe,should be a good day!

    Re: Sunday is St Patrick's Day

    We've had a family tradition that goes back to when I was very little, and that is to attend a huge St. Patrick's Day breakfast with family and friends. Back in the sixties in Queens, that usually meant going to a large hall in a church, fire station or other suitable place and eating a fabulous Irish meal with live music and a hundred people or more in attendance, with the parish priest and a few local politicians making an appearance for the event. Sadly, those days are long gone, so we now host a much smaller event right in our home with twenty or so people attending but with all the same spirit of celebration. I've already loaded up on tons of eggs, sausages, Irish bacon, black pudding and the like, while others will be preparing trays full of colcannon and homemade soda bread for the occasion. We usually drink Irish tea during the meal and have a pint of Guinness (or Murphy's for me) afterwards accompanied by a small pour of whiskey to toast one another's good health. (The whiskey has traditionally always been Paddy's for as long as I can remember, with bottles being brought directly from Ireland after visits to see other relatives in Cork where most of our family originally came from. Having Paddy on hand was always considered a real treat (and remains so), as it was forever unavailable on the US market for so many decades and only very recently made its appearance here. There are certainly better Irish whiskeys out there but we'll be sticking with the Paddy tradition until I'm pushing up daisies.)

    We are very fortunate to have a fabulous Irish pub just a block and a half away for many additional pints and live music later in the day, rounded off by a corned beef and cabbage dinner at someone else's home in the early evening. I know I'm really looking forward to it, but only half as much as my kids, who sing and dance the entire day away until they fall down with exhaustion. I tend to end the day falling down for another reason...
