This St. Patrick's Day, Go Green With McCormick's Irish-Themed Drinks And Desserts

SPARKS, Md., March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With more people of Irish descent living in the U.S. than in Ireland itself,[1] St. Patrick's Day has become a widely celebrated holiday for everyone in this country – Irish or not. This March, with green-themed recipes for delicious drinks and desserts from McCormick, you won't need the luck o' the Irish to bring their spirit to any celebration.

"On St. Patrick's Day, everyone can have fun making baked treats and beverages with that little bottle of green food color," said Chef Kevan Vetter of the McCormick Kitchens. "For example, turn regular brownies into Irish delights with vanilla extract and a green marbled cream cheese topping, or make an Emerald Mint Milkshake – the perfect treat for kids and adults alike."

Celtic Treats:

  • Shamrock Sugar Cookies: These dazzling clover-shaped sugar cookies coated in green-tinted icing are an easy way to add a little Irish fun.
  • Luck of the Irish Crispy Treats: Scatter golden foil-wrapped chocolate candy coins around these emerald green crispy treats to create your own Irish pot of gold!
  • Lemon-Lime Bars: These bars have an irresistible citrus flavor that comes from fresh lime juice and pure lemon extract.
  • Green with Envy Cheesecake Bars: Contrasting layers of green, white and chocolate brown get a hint of sophistication with refreshing pure peppermint extract.
  • Green Ombre Cake & Cupcakes: Varying the drops of food color in layers of cake batter made from a cake mix makes this colorful delight achievable for all bakers.
    • Mimic the ombre effect on the outside of the cake by tinting frosting various shades of green and layering onto the outside of the cake.
  • Irish Cream Swirl Brownies:This decadent brownie, infused with vanilla extract and Irish cream liqueur, will have everyone tapping their feet to a Celtic tune.

St. Patrick's Day Sips:

  • Emerald Mint Milkshake: This classic milkshake recipe is transformed into a cool concoction with a hint of green and touch of pure peppermint extract.
  • Creamy Irish Coffee Martini: Reinvent classic hot coffee as a cool Irish cocktail – top with whipped cream and green sprinkles.
  • Green Beer: Always a crowd-pleaser, add five to six drops of green food color to 12 ounces of beer (or lemon-lime soda).
  • Leprechaun Lemonade: Quench the thirst of your little leprechauns with green-tinted raspberry lemonade.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
