Free Saint Partick's Day Printable


Save this image to your computer, print, and frame! Enjoy all weekend :)
In our house, it's all about the green! I love to hang on to every second of any holiday, so I typically spread Saint Patties into a weekend event. This year is no exxception! Thanks to Flash Bash, we'll be toasting at happy hour with these sweet champagne sippers and starting the morning right with this delish Vegan Irish Coffee! And don't forget the Saint Patties Print (above)!! It's perfect for adding to your bar cart or a sweet touch framed in your entryway.  I'd love to know how you celebrate! Share in the comments below :)

 
Ingredients:
  • 1 oz. Irish Whiskey
  • 1 tsp. Brown sugar
  • Hot coffee
  • 1 can of full fat coconut milk (Thai Kitchen works well)
  • ½ cup of powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp. Vanilla extract
Directions:
  • Place the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 8 hours)
  • Chill a glass bowl in the fridge 10 minutes before removing coconut milk from fridge
  • Remove the can from the fridge and try not to wiggle it much prior to opening
  • Open the can. Scrape out the thickened cream and leave the coconut water behind (You can use it in a smoothie later!)
  • Place your thickened cream in your chilled glass bowl and beat with a whisk for 2 minutes, or until smooth and creamy.
  • Slowly add powdered sugar and vanilla extract to the bowl, until your whipped cream is smooth.
  • Brew your coffee and set aside
  • In your coffee mug, stir together brown sugar and irish whiskey until blended
  • Pour coffee over the sugar and whiskey and then slowly pour in fresh whipped cream. (At the risk of sounding ridiculous, take a Boomerang video of the pouring process - trust us, it's pretty.) 
  • Enjoy!

Ingredients: 
  • 1 bottle of champagne 
  • 1 small seedless cucumber, sliced 
  • 4 oz. sweetened lime juice OR fresh lime juice 
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, sliced  
  • 4 oz warm water 
  • Mint leaves and cucumber slices for garnish 
Directions: 
  • Rinse and slice the cucumber and place it in a medium-sized bowl.  
  • To julienne the mint leaves, rinse and dry the leaves, then stack them on top of each other. Starting from a short end, tightly roll the leaves into a round shape. Using a sharp knife, thinly slice the leaves and add them to the bowl with the cucumber. 
  • Muddle the cucumber, lime juice, water, and mint leaves. Place in fridge to cool up to 12 hours. Tip - for a crisp and tart drink, sub the sweetened lime juice with fresh-squeezed lime juice. 
  • When ready to serve, add an ounce of the muddled mint mixture to the bottom of the glass. Top off with champagne. 
  • Garnish with fresh mint and cucumber.
