For this Friday cocktail, we had to go with the perfect St. Patricks Day cocktail! The Irish Maid is a light, refreshing cocktail that will make you ditch the green beer for something a little more sophisticated.
A perfect cocktail that is surprisingly not too sweet, with the added freshness of the cucumbers that is both floral and refreshing, with a burst of aromatics and the cooling touch of cucumber makes for a delicious cocktail!
