    GUERNEVILLE, Calif., Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Green will be everywhere
 March 17th, when the Irish and honorary Irish (which is to say, everyone else)
 celebrate St. Patrick's Day. To add sparkle and even more green -- if possible
 -- to this festive holiday, Korbel Champagne Cellars has created "St. Pat's
 Magic," quite possibly the most fun and refreshing St. Patrick's Day drink
 ever invented.

                                  (serves one)
  Set up: In a shot glass, add one sugar cube and just enough Blue Curacao to
                                   cover it.
    In a champagne flute, mix 4 ounces Korbel Brut Champagne and a splash of
                                 orange juice.
 Then, just before serving, add the sugar cube shot to the champagne flute. The
 drink will magically turn from yellow to greenish blue and generate plenty of
               "fizz" to enhance its delightfully fresh flavors.
