Classic St. Patrick’s Day cocktails — with a twist
  • Every St. Patrick’s Day should start with brunch and a Green Bloody Mary from Platings and Pairings — or at least the St. Patrick’s Days in our dreams. Garnish this spicy cocktail with lots of veggies, and you can call it nutrition in a glass.
  • Prepare for your St. Patrick’s Day drinking with delicious, decadent Homemade Irish Cream from The Art of Moseying. Whether you’re drinking it solo or using it to add a little punch to your coffee, this recipe will guarantee you’ll never go back to store-bought Irish Cream again.
Don’t forget the Irish Whiskey
  • Kitchen Riffs knows St. Patrick’s Day isn’t complete without an Irish Whiskey cocktail, and The Brainstorm is a creative twist using classic ingredients. John also has several trivia facts about St. Patrick’s Day listed with the recipe, so check them out and impress your friends this March.
  • The Irish Buck from Kleinworth & Co. is a sparkling cocktail made with Irish Whiskey. With only three ingredients, the Irish Buck isn’t complicated, but you’ll want to fill your Collins glass a few times once you see what brings the bubbles to your glass.
Light St. Patrick’s Day cocktails
Alcohol-free St. Patrick’s Day options
  • The Shamrock Chip Shake from Veggies Don’t Bite not only offers a bit of alcohol-free deliciousness, the shake is bursting with nutrition. Spinach is hidden within the creamy, minty treat. Even kids will love this method of eating their veggies.
  • Kids will love the Homemade Mint White Hot Chocolate from The Gracious Wife. The recipe is simple enough that kids can help — even if it’s just with the marshmallows — and the warm drink is a cozy alternative to the icy options for St. Patrick’s Day.
