Remember This St. Patrick's Day

A sea of green clad people line the city streets and pour in and out of pubs and  restaurants, cheering to a background of fiddles and flutes. Windows are decorated with bright shamrocks, the symbol of Ireland and the Holy Trinity. Whiskey, beer and an air of celebration linger with the familiar smell of corned beef and cabbage as people enjoy the warm spring air.

St. Patrick’s Day is a day of tradition to recall fond memories of past days and create new ones. Many of these memories may fade over years, but the surest way to be reminded of fantastic times and traditions is through aroma. Research has shown that smell is the sense most directly linked to both emotion and memory. Although it may not be conscious, scent is tied to how we experience and remember everything.

At Alice & the Magician, we bottle those scents of nostalgia. Cocktail Aromatics will not not only enhance the flavor of your favorite cocktails, but will help establish long-lasting memories that stand the test of time.

For St. Patrick’s Day, enhance the traditional Irish whiskey cocktails with A&M Cocktail Aromatics to make something special and create new memories.
