Don't Forget to Wear Green

Going Green

Today is the day when guys typically put on a T-shirt with a shamrock printed on the front, girls put on a green top or accessory and Starbucks employees wear the same apron they do every other day.  A lot of green beer will be drunk today, which means it's time to watch this:

For those of you who have been following this blog

Clean Sheets and Dirty Girls Guide to St. Patrick's Day Drinking

An episode of Archer that premiered this March introduced me to the concept of the Green Russian, which consists of absinthe and half and half.  If you're hosting a house party, you might want to work on the proper mixture before the festivities begin because a traditional White or Black Russian relies on the deliciousness (why didn't spell check underline deliciousness?) that is Kahlua.  Simply replacing that with absinthe sounds awful.  In any event, here is way I mix my Las Vegas drink of choice, a White Russian:
4 oz. vodka 
3 oz. Kahlua
Splash of half and half
