So I ventured to beautiful Butte America this weekend for some St. Patrick’s Day fun, and let me tell you, it’s everything people have talked about! There were roughly 30,000 people in a five block radius from 10am until the bars closed at 2am. Butte is known for their St. Patty’s Day traditions, with their green beer, bag-pipers, fights and fun; but there is a new reason to head to Butte, and that’s the Dirty Girls.
Now now perverts calm down… I am not talking about actual girls! A Dirty Girl is an alcoholic beverage that was created at a local distillery (Headframes Spirits) and has become a new favorite of the DI crew.
When I asked the bartender what was in a Dirty Girl he laughed and said “dicks” – typical response from a Butte Bartender! He then proceeded to tell me the steps of making the actual vodka, which just sounds like too much work for me. Finally he got to down to it and let me in on the local recipe.
A Dirty Girl:
- 1 shot of Kahlua
- 1 shot of Vodka
- 8oz of Root Beer
It’s as simple as that. Just mix all three and serve it with ice and you’re good to go. Just make sure you’re careful with the dirty girls, they’re sweet and delicious and will knock you on your ass in no time.
