Best Saint Patrick's Day Cocktails

For many of us, Saint Patrick's Day is an excuse to have a party and grab a keg of beer. The consumption of alcoholic drinks is highest on this holiday than any other - so why not drink the most real Irish drinks? From mixed cocktails to novelty drinks, this holiday beckons for creative, tasty, and green drinks. Let's all be Irish for a day!

Green Beer

Green beer will be sold at each single bar this year on Saint Patrick's Day. Lots of places use organic dye to drip into beer bottles, or fill up pints with green frothy beers. To get the greenest beer possible , it is suggested to drink a lighter beer as the green will show through more. But if you're looking for that real Irish beer, look no farther than a tall pint of Guinness. The green will barely color the beer, but it will turn the froth green.

Irish Car Bomb

This drink is threatening as it calls for your mates to stand around you in a circle and yell "Chug! Chug! Chug!" Take 3/4 of a pint of room temperature Guinness, and a shot of 1/2 Bailey's Irish Creme and 1/2 Jameson Irish Whiskey. Drop your shot into your 3/4 pint of Guinness and drink it as quickly as possible (otherwise it will curdle).

Emerald Isle Martini

An important part of Saint Patrick's Day cocktails is transforming everyday cocktails into glowing green cocktails. The Emerald Isle Martini takes a basic martini, but instead of adding vermouth and olives, you add creme de menthe which should give a fresh flavor and turn your cocktail green. Rather than a tart, salty drink, you'll now be drinking a smooth, minty drink that is also green!

Irish Cactus

Are you an ardent tequila drinker, dreading Saint Patrick's Day because tequila is a long way from anything Irish? Never fear , the Irish Cactus is here! The Irish Cactus mixes tequila with a smooth Irish cream liqueur to make a delightful after dinner sipper.
