When I was in Dublin in November I was drinking this:
Today I drank this:
Mango juice with a splash of ginger ale (you can also do ginger ale with a splash of Jameson if you're really in the Irish mood).
I wanted to drink something festive, non-alcoholic and bubbly for St. Paddy's to represent the 12.5% of myself that is Irish. The only carbonated beverages that I really like are seltzer, cream soda (Virgil's makes the greatest cream soda I have ever tasted) and ginger ale. Ginger ale cans are notoriously green so I got out a glass, filled it 2/3 with 100% mango juice and topped it off with ginger ale.
Mango juice is great because it's so darn tasty and is packed with Vitamin C. I picked up a carton of Ceres mango juice and its got 190mg of potassium and 1 gram of dietary fiber per serving. Parents of the world: switch out your kid's regular glass of morning orange juice with mango juice to open them up to new juicy flavors!
Tonight for dinner I made an Irish dish that cannot be disclosed because I will be making it for Veggie Bites! We are taping our last two episodes of the season this weekend and I am so excited for you all to see what we've got up our sleeves!
