Eat {And Drink} Like The Irish: Here’s Your St. Patrick’s Day Shopping Guide

posted on March 12th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

This Saturday, round up the friends and fun-loving family members and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with essential Irish fare and adult beverages like sausage and mashed potatoes (aka: bangers & mash), corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, and of course, some awesome ales and stouts. You can find all of these St. Patty’s staples and more in our stores right now. So go on ahead and indulge a little this weekend…and don’t forget to wear green either!

Here’s Your St. Patty’s Day Shopping Guide:

Irish {Adult} Beverages

Whether you fancy whiskey, beer, or spiked coffee, we have the perfect Irish libation for your palate! Our favorite Irish beers are pretty obvious but they’re also delicious. Guinness Stout is a go-to on this holiday but don’t forget about Harp if you’re looking for an easy to drink lager. But if you’ve got a hankering for the “hard stuff” then look no further than Jameson Whiskey. Great served neat, it’s even better mixed in your coffee with some spiked whipped cream. Check out our recipe for an Irish Coffee with Bailey’s Whipped Cream here.

Our Very Own Uncured Corned Beef with Cabbage + Potatoes

It’s traditional and it’s tasty as can be. Grab a slab of our salty and succulent uncured corned beef brisket from our butcher and simply throw it in a roasting pan or Dutch oven and slow cook to perfection. Add the potatoes and cabbage and voila! You have an authentic Irishman’s feast with very little effort. For a full recipe, click here.

Cabbage Sausages

Because if you’re not big on corned beef and cabbage, then you ought to prepare another Irish comfort food staple – like Bangers & Mash. A funny name for a simple and oh-so flavorful dish, this meal is essentially just flavorful sausage paired with buttery mashed potatoes and topped in a rich gravy. Our seasonal cabbage sausages are perfect for this dish too. Find them now at our Butcher.

Irish Soda Bread + Butter

Awesomely dense and speckled with raisins, our Irish soda bread can be found in our bakery. It’s baked fresh daily and is irresistible when warmed with a generous spread of Kerrygold Irish butter.

Potted Shamrocks

If you’re having an Irish shindig, then you absolutely need to add some festive flair – and what better flair than some adorable potted shamrocks for good luck? We have 4 and 6-inch green, purple, and white varieties available. But they will go fast!

Party ware and Decor

Don’t forget the party necessities! We have cute and kooky napkins, plates, and decor from Design Design and Meri Meri!

A Killer Corned Beef Sandwich to Enjoy Right Now

This sandwich is a must if you’re shopping and even a little hungry. Loaded with tender corned beef, sharp and sweet Tipperary Irish Cheddar, shredded cabbage, thinly sliced onion, jalapeno, and a spread of stoneground mustard all piled high on a warm pretzel bun, it’s every bit as good as it sounds. You can find it in our deli department at our carving station. This sandwich is seasonal too – so better get it before it’s gone!
