I'm not Irish (in case you couldn't tell) but I do enjoy any and all celebratory holidays and since St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow I thought I'd start a little early by venturing to my favorite beer garden in Fort Greene, Black Forest Brooklyn to drink a pint and/or a pretty cocktail.
Black Forest Brooklyn was started by married couple, Ayana and Tobias Holler, who both grew up in the rural Black Forest region of Germany but never crossed paths until they met here in Brooklyn years later. Cute right? So I realize that this isn't an Irish pub but what does that have to do with anything. I'm sporting my favorite green Who What Wear collection bomber and I'm drinking to celebrate St. Patrick! It still counts :)
Ok, once again maybe instead of swinging back a pint or some whiskey I decided to indulge in a pretty cocktail called the Das Fräulein. It's a lavender infused gin concoction with a gorgeous presentation, but don't let this pretty lady fool you its like 90% gin so I was totally feeling the effects.
What goes better with strong drinks? More carbs! My friend and photographer, Jac'leen Smith gorged on fries and a large pretzel. Check out there full menu here.
I wish you all a fun and safe St. Patrick's Day and if you're in the area come by Black Forest Brooklyn its a great spot and the staff is beyond sweet.
