Over the years, I have found that St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday that people celebrate regardless of their Irish heritage and claim it regardless. The festive fun, the levity and communal experience makes it one of my favorites. Tullamore DEW has become a standby for our beverage station since I did the tasting with them years ago and found some just plain favorites.
But in a cool move, for the second year, the team at Tullamore DEW have launched the O’Everyone campaign that will let you custom-craft your own shirt and join in the fun. To make yours, visit here, and scope out others on IG at #OEveryone
Or like me, bookmark these for easy to make recipes that will be perfectly on theme — St. Patrick’s Day or not 🙂

Meanwhile, stir sugar and 2 tsp. hot water in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved. Add demerara syrup and cold brew to cocktail shaker; fill with ice.
