Getting Lucky with these Green Cocktails

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr


Everyone’s Irish for at least one day of the year, and it’s hard to resist. In honor of Ireland, we drink, we stay out late with our friends, and we even color our beverages green. That’s right, never has a holiday helped crappy beer sell more than St. Patty’s day, where generally bars will have ridiculous drink specials offering cheap and sometimes free Green Beer, which is usually just colored Natty Light or Busch or whatever else is dirt cheap and available. But what if you don’t drink beer? What if you still want to partake in some festive drinking. Well, there’s a few options. You can drink Irish whiskey, you can drink Irish cream, or you can drink a green liquor beverage using green colored liqueurs and/or colors that when mixed give you the green result. For those looking at the last option, we’ve got a few recipes to share using a few spirits we recently received samples on. Check them out below and give em a try this St. Pats.
