Festive St. Patrick's Day Cocktails!

Growing up, St. Patrick’s Day was always a holiday that I looked forward to! I remember one year, I had a friend spending the night and when we woke up the next morning, the leprechaun had visited, and my room was an absolute mess! There were clothes everywhere, on the lamp, on the floor, and even all over the bed. But I was the most excited by the trail of chocolate gold coins that led us from my bedroom, down the stairs, and all the way to the kitchen where a breakfast of pancakes was awaiting us.

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow and I am so excited, not only because I have always loved celebrating this holiday, but also because it is one of my best friend’s 21st Birthday!

Now that I am older, St. Patrick’s Day has grown to be a little bit of a different celebration than just eating gold chocolate coins! Here are some fun St. Patrick’s Day cocktail recipes that are easy to make, and will be festive way to celebrate the day.

  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 1/4 ounce green creme de menthe
  • 1/2 ounce Cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice


  • 2 ounces Irish Whiskey
  • Tonic Water
  • Lime for garnish

The Irish Lady

  • 3 ounces champagne

The Token Irishman
