'Real Housewives' Tamra Barney Celebrates St. Patrick's Day Early (Exclusive Video)
Bravo's Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is exploring her Irish roots… in a bar.
In a new video from NBCUniversal Direct, the cougar divorcee may be giving cast mate Alexis Bellino a run for her TV hosting money. Tamra visits a bar to learn how to make a “famous Irish drink.” No, not an Irish coffee or an Irish Car Bomb. Tamra hosts a segment on how to make an Irish Iced Tea, which is made from vodka, gin, rum, triple sec and a melon liquor.
“It’s all alcohol!” she exclaims. Um, yeah, Tamra, isn’t that the point?
Here's the recipe just in case you want to try it for yourself.
Irish Iced Tea
1/2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Gin
1/2 oz Rum
1/2 oz Triple Sec
1/2 oz melon liquor
Topped off with a dash of lemon and lime soda.
Later, she sits down with NBCUniversal Direct to talk about her perfect St. Patty’s day, childhood memories of the holiday, and which housewife she thinks will party the hardest on Saturday…
“Probably Gretchen [Rossi],” she volunteers. “She’s the youngest one and she’s still in that party zone while most of us are, ‘One drink, that’s enough, we’re over it.' ”
To her credit, she didn’t say that Gretchen would get “naked wasted.” We remember what happened the first time she said that phrase.
Watch the video above.
Do you think Tamra got it right? Who do you think will have the wildest St. Patrick's Day from the OC cast? Tell us in the comments section below.
