In honor of the Irish holiday, original cast members of Broadway‘s Tony-winning Once will gather tonight, March 17, at KTCHN at The OUT Hotel for a Broadway Irish Jam and Dinner. The show will feature songs from the show and classic Irish tunes.

Based on the motion picture of the same name, Once chronicles the story of an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant drawn to each other through their love of music. Their bond turns into a powerful collaboration and a complicated love story. The musical debuted on March 18, 2012 to rave reviews and went on to win the Tony Award for Best Musical, as well as Tonys for book writer Enda Walsh, director John Tiffany, leading actor Steve Kazee, lighting designer Natasha Katz, orchestrator Martin Lowe, set designer Bob Crowley and sound designer Clive Goodwin. The show also garnered Tony nominations for leading actress Cristin Milioti, featured actress Elizabeth A. Davis and choreographer Steven Hoggett. Powerful and gripping, the staging of the show had audiences buzzing as the actors doubled as onstage musicians (and the onstage bar wasn‘t a bad thing, either).

If you can‘t be at KTCHN live, follow the recipes below (by mixologist Veronica Farias) and tune in to our Facebook Live feed beginning at 6:30 PM ET as we live-stream backstage action and the concert!

The Sláinte
Equally layer Midori, Bailey‘s Irish Cream and Grand Marnier in a shot glass
To layer: Turn a bar spoon (or tea spoon) upside down. Place it inside the glass, with the tip of the spoon against the inside edge of the glass—above the first layer and not touching it. Pour the next liqueur as slowly as possible over the back of the spoon, moving the spoon up as the level of ingredients rises. (Always keep it above the ingredients.) Pour from the opposite side of where you’re holding the spoon. If the two ingredients mix a bit, allow a few seconds to settle, and they should separate nicely.
