Yvette’s Monthly Mixer – Shamrock Mint

Yvettes Monthly Mixer Shamrock Mint

Welcome back to my Monthly Mixer! In honor of St Patty’s Day I would like to highlight an Irish mixture called the Shamrock Mint. It’s green, it’s creamy, and a lil filling.

Drink Ingredients:
1 oz Baileys
1 oz Crème de Menthe
Milk
Whip Cream

Drink Preparation:
Add Baileys, Crème de Menthe, fill with Milk and top with Whip Cream.

Servings: 1

The Hangover:
Honestly I could only have one. The milk threw me off a bit even though it was super tasty! I think I will keep this one in mind as a dessert cocktail. I bet this would also be good with hot chocolate….hmmm that sounds like a good idea.

IN THE GREEN ROOM: The Abbey Family Unites: A Benefit for Tanya:

Join us for a night of music, drinks and love as we gather together to support our own, Tanya Orndorff. Anyone who has been to The Abbey has probably met Tanya as she’s been with us for almost 10 years. Unfortunately her family recently suffered the loss of her father Preston Orndorff. We are raise money for medical bills and burial expenses. There is no cover for this event, just donations at the door and we’ll be raffling off some cool prizes. If you can’t make it but would still like to help out please click the link below. Tanya has been smiling and entertaining our customers, staff, vendors and everyone else who walks through that door for years. Now it’s time for us to make her day brighter. We hope to see you out there.

Dropkick Murphys ‘Live On Lansdowne, Boston MA CD/DVD Out 3/16

DROPKICK MURPHYS
SET TO RELEASE ‘LIVE ON LANSDOWNE, BOSTON MA
CD AND DVD MARCH 16

dropkick murphys

THREE-WEEK HEADLINING U.S. TOUR
LAUNCHES FEBRUARY 23 IN NORFOLK, VA AND WRAPS WITH
SIX HOMETOWN ST. PATRICK’S DAY WEEK SHOWS IN BOSTON
BAND TO TOUR EUROPE JANUARY 22-FEBRUARY 4 AND APRIL 12-22

DROPKICK MURPHYS have captured the intensity and camaraderie of their annual Boston hometown St. Patrick’s Day shows on LIVE ON LANSDOWNE, BOSTON MA, a CD and DVD set for release March 16, 2010 via the group’s own Born & Bred Records (ILG). LIVE ON LANSDOWNE features 20 fan favorites and was recorded at seven Boston shows in March 2009. It will be available in various formats: CD, double disc digipack with CD and HD DVD, as well as a double gatefold vinyl with bonus CD insert.

LIVE ON LANSDOWNE marks the critically-acclaimed group’s second live release recorded during their annual string of St. Patrick’s Day week gigs, following 2002’s Live On St. Patrick’s Day From Boston MA, which has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide. LIVE ON LANSDOWNE features an entirely different track listing from the previous release and a guest appearance by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones on DKM’s platinum-selling single “I’m Shipping Up To Boston.”

This March, the MURPHYS–known for their complex distillation of classic punk rock, Celtic folk and American rock ‘n roll–return to Boston’s House Of Blues for six always sold-out gigs St. Patrick’s Day week (March 12-17). Each year, the band–who’ve released 10 full-length CDs and sold over 3 million copies worldwide–break house records when these shows go on sale. The St. Patrick’s Day shows are the peak of DROPKICK MURPHYS’ touring calendar, and fans travel to Boston from around the world for a chance to become part of this unique experience. A very limited number of tickets are still available for the March 15 and 16 shows.
