St. Patrick’s Day Cocktail: “The Montserrat”
The tiny Caribbean Island of Montserrat celebrates St. Patrick’s Day in honor of the proud mutineers of Irish slaves who fought a failed rebellion against their colonial masters on 17 March 1768. Ever since, in true Irish spirit, St. Patrick’s Day has been a public holiday on Montserrat – the Emerald Isle of the Caribbean. There are two countries in the world where St. Patrick’s Day is a public holiday: Ireland and Montserrat.
