Recipe Thursday: What to Drink on St. Patrick's Day

Pints of emerald-colored beer are a staple for St. Patrick’s Day, but if you are less a fan of drinking food coloring from a clunky stein, and more a fan of sipping something natural in a wine glass, don’t fret. There are delicious “green” wines out there that pair extremely well with traditional Irish cuisine. Of course, we’re not talking about wine that is green in color, but rather the environmentally friendly kind.


Although enjoyed primarily by Irish-for-a-Day and Irish-Americans, and not so much by the actual Irish, corned beef and cabbage (The Food Network) is a welcome centerpiece on many tables come St. Patrick’s Day. Succulent beef simmers with potatoes and carrots for a hearty meal. Its briny flavor begs for something juicy to wash it down, and a mouth-watering Chinon like Pascal Lambert’s Chinon "Les Perruches" fits the bill. Rustic and brimming with rich, crunchy fruit, this 100 percent Cabernet Franc is organic and biodynamic, making it the ultimate “green” wine for your St. Paddy’s day festivities.
