St. Patrick's Day

Every year, the weekend before St. Patrick's Day, the city of Chicago dyes the river green! Last year it was pouring rain, so we were hoping to get some good pics! However, none of my pictures turned out very well, but here's one that Google has to show:

We wandered around near the river front path and stopped in an Irish bar to get some green beer too! Downtown Chicago was like a giant party all day long! We were lucky enough to hang out with some great friends, Jon and Kelly, who we don't get to see as often as we'd like due to everyone's crazy schedules. Thanks Kelly, for an awesome photo!!!

Bryan and I were hoping for a chill evening, hopefully in sweatpants, and luckily, so were they! We started out by making our own drinks! I made a traditional cosmo, with white cranberry juice instead of red cranberry juice, and turned it green using food coloring!

How cool and ELECTRIC GREEN is that cosmo?! It tasted delicious too!

Green Cosmo
1 oz vodka
1/2 oz triple sec
1/2 oz white cranberry juice
1/2 oz lime juice
1 or 2 drops of food coloring

Add all ingredients to ice in a shaker. Shake and serve.
