Five Last-Minute St. Patrick’s Day Drink Recipes

Looking for something to drink for St. Patrick’s Day besides green beer? Check out these five cocktails! A few of these, and you’ll be jigging with the best of them!


Irish Mule

Who could say “no” to this refreshing Irish whiskey/ginger ale/lime juice drink?


Shamrock Sour Cocktail

Sure…it’s follows the “add food coloring” shortcut of green beer, but it’s still an underutilized alternative on St. Paddy’s Day.


Irish Flag Shot

Equal parts Irish cream, Licor 43 and green crème de menthe help create this smooth dessert shot.


Tipsy Leprechaun Cocktail

Speaking of dessert, this boozy milkshake combines the St. Pat’s trifecta: Jameson, Bailey’s and Guinness.


Irish Coffee

If all else fails, nothing beats an Irish Coffee topped with a mound of whipped cream.
