It doesn’t take the Luck o’ the Irish to run a great St. Patrick’s Day promotion. McCormick has developed tips and recipes for festive celebrations – including ideas for using food color to tint food and drinks green.

“Irish or not, St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday everyone loves to celebrate,” said Mary Beth Harrington of the McCormick Kitchens.
