“The month of March brings two of my favorite days, the first day of spring and St. Patrick’s Day,” said Ryan Robinson, Senior Restaurant Manager and Sommelier. “An elevated alternative to the classic St. Patrick’s Day shooter, this cocktail features an Irish whisky base and fragrant sugar syrup. The fragrance of cilantro blends well with the unique bouquet of Fernet Branca and provides soothing digestive relief after a day of imbibing.”
