The Dandizette is a newsletter by Yolanda Shoshana with a little bit of everything. Live life though your senses as you level up!

I don’t know about you, but during this pandemic, I have a hard time keeping up with dates. I have no idea what day of the week it is or when holidays are coming up. I had to be reminded a few times that St. Patrick’s Day is on the way.
Why bother with the day? St. Patrick’s Day (aka Feast of Saint Patrick) is celebrated annually on March 17, the anniversary of death of Saint Patrick (c. 385 – c. 461) a patron saint of Ireland. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years. Plus, it’s a good reason to have a dram of whiskey.
What will you do to celebrate? I think I’ll watch Leprechaun and get in some Irish whiskey. I’ve become a big fan of whiskey from Ireland in the past few years, especially the single pot. 
I’ll be sipping The Busker Triple Cask Triple Smooth. It’s a blend of Single Grain, Single Malt, and Single Pot whiskey that has been matured and finished in 3 different casks - bourbon, sherry, and marsala. The “new to world” Irish Whiskey that is born out of a modern Ireland, where the contemporary and bold meet at the crossroads of tradition. This whiskey can be sipped neat or in a cocktail. One day I hope to be sipping it in Ireland.
Peep the recipe below.. you can never go wrong with a whiskey Old-Fashioned. Simply use Busker instead of bourbon. Quick, easy, smooth. BOOM!
Busker Old-Fashioned
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 ounces Busker Triple Cask Triple Smooth
  • Garnish: orange peel (optional)
  1. Add the sugar and bitters to a rocks glass, then add water, and stir until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Fill the glass with a large ice cube, add the whiskey, and gently stir.
  3. Express the oil of an orange peel over the glass, then drop in.

To Eat:
Krispy Kreme is doing the most by seducing customers to come in for St. Patrick’s Day doughnuts. They have four flavors Lucky Unicorn, Lucky Leprechaun, Lucky Gold Coins, and Lucky Sprinkles. They will give away green glazed for those wearing green on March 16th & 17th. Sounds so delish and not to miss.

The Irish love them some potatoes. The vegetable has been a big part of their history for years. If you dig potatoes as much as I do, then Shepherd’s Pie Potato Bowls will be right up your alley. The twice baked potato is filled with meat, carrots, and peas. Sounds like it would be perfect paired with a Pinot Noir.

Soda bread will be easy to get during this time. I know some of you want to be kitchen witches and make your own. You don’t need a lot to make it happen. Seven ingredients will get you there.

To Do:
The St. Paddy’s Day parade in NYC will be virtual this year. It’s going to be small. Sometimes small is mighty. Some extra green stuff like interviews and footage will be on YouTube. Be sure to tune in.
