Start your celebration off with a Ginger Jameson Cocktail – it’s so refreshing and easy! There are many variations of this recipe, here’s my favorite: Fill a tall glass with ice. Add 2 ounces Jameson, 1 ounce of Domaine de Canton (ginger liquor), fill with Ginger Beer (a type of ginger ale), squeeze a lime wedge and stir.
Add a couple snackies and your ready to party! I recommend a cheese platter with Irish cheeses of course – arrange a white cheddar, like Kerrygold Dubliner is always a crowd pleaser, a Cashel Blue, add some caramelized walnuts, sliced pears and baguette slices on a wood board or slate cheeseboard and watch your guests ooh and aah.
For a fun twist on the standard Reuben Sandwich try these yummy Reuben Torilla Pinwheels – perfect party food! Mix together 40z room temperature cream cheese with 1/2 cup Russian dressing, 1/2 cup drained sauer kraut, and 1/4 cup shredded swiss cheese. Spread onto 6 wholewheat tortillas, top with a slice of corn beef. Roll up tight, wrap in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 1 hour. Slice into 1/2 inch pieces, secure with a toothpick and place on a white platter. Enjoy!
