There's an old joke in the family; "I am half Irish, half Italian so I argue with myself!" That said, every year we try to figure out what to drink on St. Paddies day. I never was one for gimmicks when it comes to drinking. Make my margaritas on the rocks, my wine not in a sangria and for the love of God laddie, leave the color of my beer alone!
This year we are heading over to a friends place and along with us a few bottles of Viognier which will go great with corned beef and few bottles of red, which probably won't, but who cares. By the end of the meal, I'll be too full for beer and need a glass of red wine to digest the rest of day with. I will probably slip a pint of ale in there somewhere too but when it comes to festive meals, wine is never an argument around here.
So here's a cheers to you all on St. Patrick's Day!
