St. Patty's Day Drinks of the Week

You can't get pinched if your drink is green!

For this St. Patrick's Day, try celebrating with a green cocktail. Even those who aren’t Irish can feel Irish for a day!

First and foremost: Green Beer. Not hard to make at all, and still the same great taste… Only if you are a beer fan, of course.

  • Beer! Duh!
  • And green food coloring.
Most beers work the same, however the lighter beers show the green better.

Now put the food coloring into a clear beer glass (a few drops is all it takes), and pour in the beer! What a wonderful St. Patty’s Day delight!

However, if beer doesn’t suit your fancy, try an apple cocktail…

Green Dublin Apple Cocktail

  • 2 oz Michael Collins Irish whiskey
  • 1 oz sour apple schnapps
  • 2 oz white cranberry juice
How to:
Add all three ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake for about 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a fresh apple slice.

And most importantly, an Appletini.

  • 1 1/2 oz Smirnoff® Green Apple Twist vodka
  • 1 oz DeKuyper® Sour Apple Pucker schnapps (or Rose's Cocktail Infusions-Green Apple, if you don't want it too strong)
How to:
Stir ingredients together with crushed ice in a martini glass, and serve

Enjoy the Irish day, and enjoy the green in your spirit!
