Day 3: Last Minute St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Party

St Patty's Frozen Cocktail Prep Sweet Lane Events

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s day!  I feel pretty well prepared for my St. Patrick’s day dinner party.  You haven’t been following my journey, check out Day 1 & 2 as I put together this last minute dinner party.  The corned beef is in the crock pot cooking for 10-12 hours tonight and I have the cocktails mixed up and in the freezer.  Unfortunately the party has gotten even smaller, it is down to just 4 of us, my brother just bailed for last minute concert tickets.  No worries, it is family, small or large, I am happy to spend time with them.  

 

Food Prep

Tonight is all about food prep.  The Shepard’s Pie recipe calls for cooked corned beef, so I set it on low to cook for the night so it will be ready for tomorrow.

The green St. Patrick’s day cocktail is a variation of my own recipe that I use to make a slushy alcoholic cocktail.  It has to be made ahead so it can freeze, depending on your freezer temp, it is best to allow at least 8 hours.  This recipe will easily fill six 8 oz. mason jars.  It really makes serving you guests a cocktail a snap, because of the prep work is done long before they arrive.
