St. Patrick’s Cocktails

St. Patrick’s Day – it’s one of the biggest drinking holidays of the year. Fortunately for drinkers looking for festive cocktails without leaving the house, we’ve got you covered. Here are some (mostly green) recipes to help you celebrate.

 

Chartreuse Smash (Recipe via Saveur)
Don’t sleep on Chartreuse. Its complex herbal flavor is great for mixing into cocktails. Made by Carthusian monks in the mountains of southeastern France for more than 200 years, the yellow-green spirit (hence the name) has long been thought to have medicinal qualities.

Irish Julep (Recipe via Cosmopolitan)

A twist on the traditional julep (or maybe a nod to that omni-present green milkshake), this refreshing libation will have you feeling lucky in no time. Lactose intolerant? Try coconut milk.

 

Irish Coffee (Recipe via Mashable)

Good morning, indeed! Whether you’re just kicking off your St Paddy’s festivities or need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, try this classic and simple drink. Combine coffee, brown sugar and silky smooth whipped cream, and of course, Irish Whiskey.

 

Irish Car Bomb Jello Shots (Recipe via E is for Eat)

Guinness jello shots. Because, why not? Grab your melon baller and create these adorable little jiggly, foamy masterpieces for the big day. You can serve ‘em up on spoons or prepare them in mini beer mugs or shot glasses if you have them.
