by BUST Magazine

Serious stirring and shaking is about to happen, thanks to the San Francisco return of Speed Rack, the all-female speed-bartending competition that raises money for breast cancer charities. The fourth national tour will stop in San Francisco on

Sunday, March 15, as it strives to bring together 20 of the best, brightest and fastest female bartenders in the region and BUST will be part of the action!

Speed Rack founders Ivy Mix and Lynnette Marrero have provided us with some awesome St. Patrick’s Day cocktail recipes in honor of the event and upcoming holiday. Make sure to get down with these at home, and if you’re lucky enough to be in San Fran, don’t miss the competition this Sunday!
