Foodie: St. Patrick's Day Treats

Here are some simple & cheap treats to celebrate
St. Patty's Day!

If you can't decide what to do or where to go today after having some of these fantastic treats, be sure to check out Time Out's extensive St. Patrick's Day in NYC Guide as well as GuestofaGuest's.  A highlight will definitely be the England vs. Ireland game of the Six Nations Rugby Tournament starting at 1pm EST which should be a lot of fun to watch today!  

To Drink...

FREE Shot of St. Patrick's Emerald Essence at Ayza
Available only on request at Ayza Midtown & West Village March 17th

St. Patrick's Emerald Essence is a green chocolate cocktail - yum!
Ayza Wine & Chocolate Bar is one of my favorite spots in NYC.  I love to go there for a tapas-style dinner, sangria, mulled wine, and wine flights.  My favorite dishes are the White Truffle Pizza, Hot Artichoke Hearts w/ Irish Cheddar Cheese & Toasted Pita, and Goat Cheese Brulee Salad with beets and truffle walnut sherry vinaigrette.

Check out Ayza's Blog post on their St. Patrick's Day Shot HERE

I especially love going  to Ayza on Tuesday evenings for Girls Night (FREE chocolate shot & Belgian chocolate covered strawberry).  They also have a Couples Night on Sundays (FREE Jacques Torres truffles, candle-lit tables, rose petals, etc).  If you "like" them on Facebook, you'll also get a voucher for a FREE glass of wine.

Superfruit Skiver 
(Skiver is Irish slang for the person who avoids honest work)
1.5 ounces VeeV Açaí Spirit
Fill with lemonade
Top with your favorite green beer
Lemon or orange wedge, for garnish
Add all ingredients to the mason jar, pack with ice and seal the top.
Shake and enjoy!
