We love their accents, swoon over the countryside while we watch P.S. I Love You, and
respect their ability to party. So, obviously, we adopt an Irish
holiday as our own and celebrate in style. Today, we’re giving you 11
cocktail recipes to take your St. Patrick’s Day party to the next level.
We were going to give you 10, but who can resist a shot that merges
Bailey’s Irish Cream with your favorite childhood cereal? Call your
friends, mark your calendars, and become one lucky mixologist.
The Emerald Isle of Drinks
An American staple at bars and pubs on St. Patrick’s Day can come
straight to your living room. All you need is your favorite
light-colored beer and a drop of green food coloring. Bring the
tradition of green beer home this year!
Green Dublin Apple Cocktail:
Fans of apple martinis will love this Irish twist. Sub out vodka with
Irish whiskey for a depth of flavor you didn’t know you were missing.
Sour apple schnapps and white cranberry juice make your drink a festive
Green Apple Sangria:
Who said sangria could only be enjoyed in the summer? This is the
perfect make-ahead beverage to serve a crowd. All you need is white
wine, ginger beer, and Granny Smith apples. Tart, fizzy, green, and
Simple but Effective
Looking for a festive happy hour or dessert drink? Mix your favorite
Irish cream with every Texan’s staple liquor: tequila. This creamy
combination is unlikely but unforgettable—in the best way.
If you like tart drinks with a hint of booze and a touch of sweetness,
start pouring! Stir juices from lemons and limes, simple syrup, and
Irish whiskey. You can add green food coloring if you really want to
make this drink holiday worthy.
The Irish Mule:
The mule is perhaps the most versatile of drinks! Put an Irish twist on
your favorite cocktail by pouring Irish whiskey in your copper mug
alongside the traditional ingredients of ginger beer, lime, and fresh
Boozy Milkshakes and Coffees
Bailey’s Irish Floats:
Ice cream, Guinness Beer, Bailey’s Irish Cream, and Chocolate sauce.
Need we say more? If you’re looking for a dessert beverage that gives
you all the comforts of a rich milkshake with a respectable nod to the
Irish, this is the drink for you.
The Nutty Irishman:
This is an after-dinner drink you may be tempted to make on Saturdays.
Black coffee spiked with Kahlua, Irish cream, Irish whiskey, and
Frangelico will make you question how you take your coffee any other
way. Add a little sugar if you like it sweeter, but don’t forget a
generous dollop of whipped cream.
Combine coffee liqueur, amaretto, and milk for a satisfying light and
creamy cocktail. The Shamrock Shaker is low in alcohol and high in
flavor so you can indulge today without the risk of tomorrow’s headache.
Pot O’ Gold Shots:
Jello shots fit for the luckiest leprechaun! Simple, cute, and a wee
bit addicting. Yellow jello, Irish whiskey whipped cream, gold
sprinkles, and rainbow candy belts are sure to be a party favorite.
Lucky Charms Shots:
This is the perfect way to end St. Patrick’s Day. This recipe takes the
best part of our Lucky Charms memories—drinking the sugary milk after
you eat all the cereal—and turns into the base for this drink. Irish
cream brings this shot to life but it’s the crushed cereal around the
rim that will take you back in time.
