In honor of St Patrick’s Day and my Irish heritage – apparently I’m what they call the “black” Irish – I created a neon green gluten free drink for those of us that won’t be drinking green beer tonight! And as an added bonus, this melon cocktail has way less calories than your average beer and especially your average Irish cream ale! Enjoy my friends – The Shamrock Slam!
- 1 ounce melon liqueur
- 1 once vodka
- 2 ounces pineapple juice
- Splash of fizzy bubbly (i.e. anything that’s clear & carbonated)
- Two cute cocktail glasses or champagne flutes for extra fun!
Pour the melon liqueur, vodka and pineapple juice into a martini shaker and top up with about 4-5 ice cubes. Shake it vigorously for about 30 seconds and put your whole body into it – drink mixing can be exercise, yeh! This also makes it ice cold for optimal sipping pleasure.
Now open the lid to the martini shaker and dip the tips of glasses into it, then without turning the glasses right-side-up, dip them into your sugar bowl.
Now strain the the contents of the shaker into your two glasses, making sure not to disrupt your pretty sugar rim. Top each glass up with a splash of bubbly, and you’ve got yourself a Shamrock Slam!
Serves 2. Please drink responsibly!
