St. Patrick's Day Offerings at Jardenea

Jardenea's Irish Blonde 

From our friends at Jardenea Restaurant...

Jardenea, the farm-to-fork restaurant at Melrose Georgetown Hotel is offering the Irish Blonde, a festive cocktail in honor of St. Patrick's Day. To feel the luck of the Irish, sip on this delicious mixture of Bushmills Irish Whiskey, RumChata, and Crème de menthe. To make your own at home, see below for the full recipe... then stop by Jardenea later and compare.

• 2 ounces of Bushmills Irish Whiskey
• ½ ounce of RumChata
• ½ ounce of green Crème de menthe
• ½ ounce of egg white
• Garnish with a cilantro sprig

Put all the ingredients together in a mixing glass, shake it really well, then pour it in to a chilled martini glass. Top it off with a cilantro sprig garnish (make it look like a clover leaf.)
