Lucky Liquor: St. Patrick's Day Drinks

What does St. Patrick’s Day Mean?

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church.  The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland as well as celebrating the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.  Christians also attend church services and the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day.

In my family, a  St. Patrick’s Day celebration typically includes things like corn beef and cabbage, leprechauns, shamrocks, parades, and Irish jigs.

Along with the typical traditions, this year, the kids and I decided to make St. Patty’s Day sugar cookies using green and white icing and lots of festive sprinkles!
