St. Kevin’s Cocktail Recipe In celebration of tomorrow’s St. Patrick’s Day, we’ve been enjoying Glenadalough Irish whiskey this week. St. Patrick is, of course, the patron saint of Ireland. The patron saint of Glendalough, though, is St. Kevin. St. Patrick’s legendary nature miracle was clearing Ireland of snakes. St. Kevin’s was more modest, but very kindly. One day while he had his hand upraised...

Craft Irish Whiskey for St. Patrick’s Day We got our first taste of the Irish whiskey revival last spring at a Glendalough pop-up at Service Bar. Since then, we’ve grown in our appreciation for Irish whiskey as a more companionable spirit for mixing.

Remembering that Hemingway was a big Champagne fan, we thumbed through our handy copy of To Have and Have Another to see if he had any ideas for us. Nothing...

The Nora Highball Cocktail Recipe When we returned from the hospital on November 4th, it felt like high time for a drink. One of us had been waiting for one for 9 months, nine hot, uncomfortable, tired and tiring months. Then she had to wait another week. Then, she endured five days of contractions to the point of utter exhaustion and excruciating pain. Somehow, all of this hardship proved worth it that miraculous moment when our baby...
