Generally, the most common drinks people enjoy during St. Patrick’s Day are the traditional colored beer or some colored shots, but, if you want to elevate your game and feel the luck of the Irish with actually delicious cocktails, you might want to look at these.

Green beer

Ok, we needed to include the green beer on the list. Though to achieve this you’ll only need to pour your favorite beer on a beer glass and add some drops of green good coloring, you can always make it extra special. You can try adding a bit of lime juice and turn it into a delicious St. Patty’s michelada. (Don’t miss the salted rim!)


Irish flag shots

These are absolutely gorgeous and quite easy to make, you’ll just need a bit of practice and patience. First, visually divide your shot glasses into three parts. Pour half an ounce (or just enough to fill 1/3 of the glass) of green mint cream liqueur. Float half an ounce of Irish cream liqueur. To do this, you’ll need to slowly pour the liquid through the back of a spoon lightly touching the served layer. Do the same with half an ounce of orange liqueur.

Midori mojito

Muddle some mint or peppermint leaves and lime juice on a glass. In a shaker add ice, 2 tablespoons of simple syrup, 1.5 ounces of white rum, and 1 ounce of Midori (melon liqueur). Shake consistently for about half a minute or until the shaker is cold. Pour the mix on the glass and top it with club soda. Stir softly and garnish with some mint leaves or lemon wedges.

Shamrock shake

Mix vanilla ice cream, Baileys, whiskey, a tad of green food coloring, and peppermint extract (you can exchange the last two with a bright green mint liqueur) on a blender until you get a smooth thick consistency. Pour the mix on a nice glass and top it with whipped cream. You can make it extra special by crushing some mint Oreos and garnishing the rim with it and chocolate syrup, or simply adding some bits of cookies or small mint chocolates on top of the whipped cream.


Irish appletini

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, pour 2 ounces of Irish whiskey, 1 ounce of sour apple schnapps, and 2 ounces of white cranberry juice. Shake well for about half a minute. Strain the mix into a cocktail glass and garnish with fresh apple slices.

St. Patty’s grasshopper

In a random glass mix half an ounce of cold mint cream, 2 ounces of cold white chocolate liqueur, 1 ounce of cold vodka. Stir softly until all the ingredients are perfectly blended. Pour on a cocktail glass and garnish with a mint leaf. You can also add some whipped cream and chocolate shavings.


Green fairy cocktail

This one is dangerous, so have it in mind for just a tiny taste of it. In a shaker with ice, add 1 ounce of absinthe, 1 ounce of water, 1.5 ounces of lemon juice, some drops of angostura bitters, and 3 teaspoons of sugar. Shake well for half a minute and serve on a glass. Garnish with some orange peels or angostura bitters.

Green whiskey sour

In a shaker filled with ice, pour 2 ounces of whiskey, 4 ounces of sweet sour mix, and green food coloring (or green peppermint or apple liqueur). Shake consistently for half a minute and serve into a whiskey glass with ice. You can garnish with some peppermint leaves or cherries.


Kiwi punch

In a punch bowl with ice, add 1 cup of fresh lime juice, 4 cups of white juice, 1 cup of vodka, and 8 cups of sparkling water. Stir slowly until all the ingredients are perfectly blended. Add freshly sliced kiwi and some blueberries and let it sit on the fridge for a couple of hours.

Mint Margarita

Last but not least, a refreshing twist to the classic Margarita cocktail. In a blender with ice, add 2 ounces of tequila, half an ounce of triple sec, 1 ounce of lime juice, half an ounce of green mint liqueur, and a pinch of salt. Add lime and salt to the rim of a Margarita glass to garnish and add a lime wedge.
