1. Green Beer

This is the all-too-famous drink that my father makes every year. Take your favorite light beer and add a drop or two of liquid, green food coloring. Note: Not too many drops. Trust me on this one.

2. Emerald Sunrise

This spin on a tequila sunrise is delicious AND picture-worthy! Make a stunning layered drink with blue curaçao, or mix it all up for a sweet, green drink on the rocks.

Orange juice and tequila goes into the glass first, mixing thoroughly together. The blue curaçao can be added by either pouring it into a straw that sits at the bottom of the glass, or poured on top for a less layered look. Find the recipe here!

3. Fuzzy Leprechaun

Sipping on this drink would bring me back to the beach! With pineapple juice, peach schnapps, orange juice and blue curaçao, you’ll cure those wintertime blues. Recipe on Tammilee Tips.

4. Vodka Limeade

One simple, light green cocktail with ice please! This recipe uses vodka, triple sec, club soda and limeade.

5. Grasshopper

Did someone say dessert?

This cocktail is made with half and half (or you can bring out the ice cream), creme de menthe and creme de cacao! Pour into a martini glass and serve cold!

6. Hammered Hulk

Don’t ask me about the name – but it’s described as “the perfect drink for a superhero.” Take that as you will.

Nonetheless, this drink looks delicious. Coconut rum and Midori liquor are the top two ingredients. Yum!

7. The Shamrock Sour

Here’s another tasty lemon-lime combo, but this time it’s with whiskey. Try adding sweet and sour mix to this recipe for a real, sour bite!

8. Last Word Cocktail

This classy drink is EVERYTHING.

Dating back to 1915, this cocktail includes gin, green Chartreuse, maraschino liquor and fresh lime juice. Chill and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a cherry or whatever suits your fancy.

9. Green Apple Martini

The Food Network takes a jab at this popular drink – and it looks elegant.

If you’re into green apple, make sure to try this one. The cinnamon-sugar rim is a must!

10. Green Prosecco Cocktail

Looking for something a little lighter? This bubbly, wine-based cocktail is great with dinner or for dessert. Cheers!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Whether you celebrate the holiday every year, have Irish heritage, or are just looking for an excuse to whip up a cool cocktail, happy celebrating!

Yours Truly,
