Up until this very moment I always thought that the four leaf clover was the lucky clover associated with St. Patrick's Day- wrong! Before I wrote this post I thought I would do a little research on the history of St. Patrick's Day. I knew it was a day to celebrate being Irish (or wishing you were!) and I knew that Saint Patrick was a patron saint of Ireland. But that's about it. It turn out it's the THREE leaf clover that is lucky. In Ireland everything good comes in threes. Three is Ireland's most sacred and magical number. It represents: Love, Valour and Wit. Faith, Hope and Charity. Past, Present and Future. Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Lucky for us the THREE leaf clover is soooo much easier to find! Lucky for us this wonderful and refreshing drink also has THREE main ingredients St Patricks Day 'Spa Water'
1.5 oz HDC Lime Vodka
Shake over ice
Pour over ice
Top with Club Soda & a squeeze of lime This drink is just scary good! It tastes like your'e drinking spa water (hence the name!). And I really really love it for St Patrick's Day because it's nice to have a drink to celebrate with that isn't overly sweet and green looking!
As the Irish say: May the neighbors respect you, trouble neglect you, the angels protect you, and heaven accept you!!
Sláinte (Cheers in Gaelic)!
