Baileys and Coffee

Like homecoming, St. Paddy's is a full day event and that means kicking off the festivities early in the morning! Instead of going into the day using the 'hair of the dog' approach, switch out your plain cup of joe for one with an extra kick of Baileys in it! Remember, St. Paddy's is a full day event! If you're planning to make it through the day and go out at night with your friends, then your day of drinking should be a marathon, not a sprint.

Pancakes are an easy, inexpensive meal to cook, making them the perfect breakfast to kick start your St. Paddy's day! As well, they are an easy meal to impress your guests with.

Add in a few drops of green food colouring to get everything, even your breakfast into the Irish spirit! At 8 a.m. the next morning, all that will be required of you is to cook up some cakes and VOILA! You are already well on your way to having the best St. Paddy's day yet.
