One year after St. Patrick’s Day disappeared, it is back, although not with quite the fanfare as it normally has, but there are still plenty of great way to celebrate in 2021. Splash Magazines Worldwide has put together a few of the best places grab some authentic Irish food as well as cocktail that will help bring out your Irish spirit.
A pub-less St. Patrick’s Day? Fear not, it’s Drizly and Guinness to the rescue, taking homebound revelers all the way to Ireland (OK, next best thing). The two brands are partnering for an interactive “Perfect Pour 101” session – live from the Guinness Open Gate Brewery Taproom in Dublin – on Wednesday, March 17.
Hosted by taproom manager Padraig Fox, the event will show how to achieve the perfect pour at home, from a literal living master. Fans wanting to ask anything about the legendary stout (and beyond) will get a chance to commune live with Padraig, right from their kitchens, living rooms – or wherever. You can use the promo code “SPD” for $5 off all new Drizly customers for the event.
The event will start at 5:30pm EST/2:30pm PST. Registration details can be found here: https://bit.ly/3brKrNx
For the cocktail lover who is looking for a twist on the usual Irish cocktail, Grand Brulot is comprised of the finest ‘eaux de vie’ from a blend of Ugni Blanc & Colombard grapes from its single-estate which is then crafted into an elegant 80 proof VSOP Cognac that sits to age for 4-5 years. To complete the flavor experience, 100% Robusta Ecuadorian coffee bean essence is extracted and blended with brandy to meld for a couple of months before it is blended with the VSOP Cognac. The final product, with its equivalent of one shot of espresso per serving, is superlative; a real crowd-pleaser that works beautifully in all sort of drinks for a variety of occasions. In the 18th century, the French introduced the concept of spiking their coffee with brandy to create a digestif, and Grand Brulot revived that custom with a new recipe, uniting VSOP Cognac with its choice of the rich Robusta Coffee from Ecuador. Grand Brulot also pays tribute to a New Orleans specialty of the same name which still serves up it’s beautiful blue hot flame around town. For more information, visit: Grand Brulot
