7 St. Patrick's Day Cocktails to Sip This Year

It's almost St. Patrick's Day, Marylanders! That means there's plenty of options when it comes to your drink of choice. Whether you like traditional choices like Irish whiskey or you'd rather mix up something a little more unorthodox, we've got a few choices for you! Check out our picks below, and don't forget to enjoy your drinks responsibly. 

 

Grasshopper Cocktail

Mint and chocolate is a classic combo, and that bright green color just screams St. Patrick's Day! This recipe from The Kitchen is My Playground is perfect for anyone who wants their St. Paddy's drink to look fancy without too much work. Perfect for brunch!

Pickleback Shot

Feeling adventurous? Love pickles? This recipe from The Spruce Eats is sure to please anyone who wants to add some pickle power to this St. Patrick's Day! A shot of Jameson gives it a traditional Irish flavor.

Shamrock Sour

Pizzazzerie has a recipe that looks as good as it tastes -- a deceptively simple drink that also features Irish whiskey. Presentation is key, and the recipe also includes a few ideas for snazzing up your drinks with shamrock stirrers. After all, you're wearing green, so why shouldn't your drink?

Guinness Float

Sure, you could just open up a Guinness and call it a day. But the rich flavor of this beer is strangely perfect for pairing with vanilla ice cream, so why not make a float while you're at it? Just be sure to pour slow and steady to avoid too much foam! 

Shamrock Shaker

This smooth and creamy cocktail requires just three ingredients -- amaretto liqueur, coffee liqueur, and milk. Not bad! Head to The Spruce Eats to find out how to make this simple and sophisticated drink that you'll enjoy if you're not in the mood for dyed beer. 

Lucky Leprechaun Rum Punch

Grab the Lucky Charms and run to the kitchen to make this fun drink! This recipe from Freutcake features rum, Kool-Aid, mint, and crushed marshmallows from your favorite cereal. It's perfect for Instagram photos! 

Sour Green Apple Jalapeno Margarita

A little sour, a little spicy, and a whole lot of green -- intrigued? This recipe from Heather Christo requires a lot of ingredients, but you'll be rewarded with a complex and fun flavor that's perfect for St. Paddy's.
