It’s that time again to get drunk in the name of a dead saint.
Whether your plans involve surviving a gauntlet of beer taps or keeping it low key, now is the perfect time to toss a little bit of green into your cocktail shaker.
To get you ready for your classy night out of the year, we asked Sebastien Centner of Eatertainment and The One Eighty (as seen here) to craft a green Caesar that even Saint Pat himself would consume with confidence.
So, throw on a green blazer and blend one up. And don’t forget, the One Eighty will have this will have this little guy waiting for you on Sunday as your hair of the dog cure.
What you’ll need
1 pound of Tomatillos
½ pint of Yellow Grape Tomatoes
Half a English Cucumber
2 Garlic Cloves
2 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice
1 Thai Chile
1 Teaspoon of Kosher Salt
10 Springs of Cilantro
1 Teaspoon of Horseradish
¾ Teaspoon of Green Tabasco Sauce
½ Teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce
1 Pinch of Celery Seeds
Combine all of the above ingredients in a blender until liquefied. In the meantime, rim a highball glass with coarse sea salt. Fine strain approximately five ounces of the green liquefied base through a chinois into a shaking tin. Fill the thing with ice, a shot or two of vodka, and shake the chinois vigorously. Strain into the rimmed highball glass over ice. Garnish with a lime wedge, a skewered pickled bean, and an olive, then serve it to those most worthy of imbibing in your company (yes, that includes work pals).
