St. Patrick’s Day is the greatest of drinking holidays, and…with bars opening up this time around…you might actually get to enjoying the way the good Lord intended.
However, If you’re staying in and craving something more than just green beer, you could kick things up a notch with a few cocktail ideas from Delish.
Bailey’s Irish Floats – Vanilla ice cream + Guinness + Bailey’s Irish Cream + chocolate syrup = AWESOME!
Copycat Shamrock Shake – Tastes identical, with vanilla ice cream, heavy cream, peppermint extract, and a few drops of green food coloring.
Pot O’ Gold Shots – Lemon or pineapple Jell-O, cold whisky, Cool Whip, rainbow candy belts for decoration.
Green Bloody Mary – Tomatillos, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, jalapenos, garlic, lime juice, horseradish, kosher salt, celery seed, and – of course – vodka. All you need is a food processor!
Whisky Lemonade Punch – Just get some water, mint tea bags, thyme, granulated sugar, bourbon whisky, and lemon juice. Just get a pitcher!
Shamrock Sour – Simple syrup, with lemon & lime juice, Irish whisky, and a dash of green food coloring.
Irish Mint Mojito – Sugar, water, fresh mint leaves, limes, Irish whisky, tonic water or ginger ale, and crushed ice will do the trick!
Irish Mule – Irish whisky, ginger beer, lime juice, and mint…simple and fantastic!
