Lucky Charms Cereal Martini

Lucky Charms is my childhood.  Do you have a cereal that is like that?

You might have seen on Instagram a few weekends ago where I was having my Saturday morning breakfast with my beloved Lucky Charms. Rewind the clock 20 years and you’d see the same picture, except I grew a few inches and have a few more cats.

Do you notice the marshmallows are all green? I know, adorable right? It’s because this year Lucky the Leprechaun is turning 50 years old (his Birthday is March 17) so they created a limited edition green Lucky Charms!   Are you like me and can just eat the marshmallows by the handful?  They’re addicting.

Want some marshmallow history? I got it for you.  Red balloons? A rainbow? The blue diamond?  These are childhood memories!

To get in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day and to show some yummy green love, why not use Lucky Charms to make something not expected, like a Rainbow Martini?  This is a adult Martini here, but why not be creative and make a juice martini for the kids?  Little Sally can have a orange juice with marshmallows crushed on the cup lid while Mom boozes it up along side her on a Monday afternoon.   Cheers.
