16 Mar Fun Cocktails to Make This St. Patrick’s Day
St.Patrick’s Day drinks are an integral part of the holiday. St. Paddy’s Day ideally means taking shots of whiskey and cheersing pints of Guinness at the bar.
It wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without a glass of green beer. It’s usually the traditional drink of the holidays. You can enjoy green beer and make it your own.
All you need is a 12-oz of beer and green food coloring. To make it, all you have to do is add one drop of green food coloring to an empty glass and pour the beer along with it!
Irish Car Bomb Shot
The Irish Car Bomb is incredibly easy to make. It is a combination of full-flavored and lightly bitter, malty beer and a creamy shot . This only takes three ingredients to make. Those are, Irish whiskey, Irish cream, and Guinness Stout.
Similar to a Jäger bomb, the Irish Car Bomb is not for the cautious drinker. It is customary to chug the drink right after the shot of Irish cream and whiskey is dropped into the glass of beer.
It is a lot to get down in one shot. Unless you want to get drunk quickly, in which case, have fun!
Pot o’ Gold
The name of this cocktail alone proves to be fit for a St. Patrick’s Day drinking experience. Pot of Gold requires several ingredients.
Mix cucumber and 8 leaves of fresh mint into a cocktail shaker and add 2 oz of vodka and ½ ounce of elderflower liqueur. Shake well and strain it into a cocktail glass, and add 1 oz of ginger beer. You can also garnish your cocktail with cucumbers and mint leaves!
Green Dublin Apple Cocktail
In the mood for a green martini? Here’s a fun cocktail to try to get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit. To make a Green Dublin, pour 2 oz of Irish whiskey (Michael Collins), 1 oz of sour apple schnapps and 2 oz of white cranberry juice into a cocktail shaker and shake for 30 seconds.
Strain the mixed ingredients into a cocktail glass, and add an apple slice for garnish!
If you’re looking for a St. Patrick’s Day refresher, try the whiskey tonic cocktail. It’s very simple to make.
Pour 2 oz of Irish whiskey into a glass with ice. Top with tonic water for taste and stir it well. Finally, for garnish, add a lemon wedge!
No, we’re not talking about those limited edition Shamrock Shakes you’d find at your local McDonald’s. The shamrock shaker, however, is definitely one of the top-tier drinks for St. Patrick’s Day.
This creamy cocktail takes 3 minutes to make at home. To make the shamrock shaker, add ice cubes, 1 ½ ounces of coffee liqueur (Kahlua), ½ ounce of amaretto liqueur, and milk into a cocktail shaker. Shake it well and pour into a chilled cocktail glass. Add green and gold powder for garnish!
Lucky Charms Shot
If you’re looking for something magically delicious and breakfast-friendly, you can consider Lucky Charms shots. What an interesting combination, right? It may take a while to make, but the result will be worthwhile!
You’ll need to pour 1 cup of Lucky Charms into 1 cup of whole milk and leave in the fridge for 10 minutes. Strain out the cereal after and pour the milk into a pitcher. Add 1 cup of Bailey’s Irish cream to the milk and stir. After, remove eight marshmallows from the cereal, which you will crush and mix with sprinkles.
Finally, dip the shot glasses into vanilla frosting, sprinkle with cereal crumbs and pour the infused milk into the glass!
