St Patrick’s Day – Let the celebrations begin…
St Patrick’s Day is most certainly one of the biggest knees-up of the year. It’s a celebration that has become a tradition for so many of us, whether we are Irish or not. If you are partying and joining in the fun, a few wonderful tipples will be needed for the occasion. Here are some you might like to try.
The Famous Green Beer
What is the drink that everyone wants the recipe for on St. Patrick’s Day? It’s green beer, of course. In keeping with the traditional green colour of St Patrick’s Day, green beer does have a certain appeal. If you’ve only tried it before at your local pub, why don’t you save a bit of cash and have fun making it for yourself at home? All that is required is beer and green food colouring. Perfect!
Cocktail Hour – Green Dublin Apple Cocktail
Green is the colour of the celebrations, and there are many wonderful cocktail concoctions that are just perfect for St Patrick’s Day. A special favourite has to be the Green Dublin Apple Cocktail. What makes this ordinary green apple martini extraordinary is that this one replaces the usual vodka shot with wonderful Irish whiskey. Also mixed in to sweeten the deal is white cranberry juice, while green apple schnapps gives this drink its luminous green signature colour.
Uh-Oh! Time for a round of shots…
In addition to receiving St Patricks Day gifts such as those at https://www.shamrockgift.com/st-patricks-day, what St Patrick’s Day celebration would be complete without a round of shots? There are many recipes for shooters that fit the Irish green drinks theme, but how about trying this version of the Jell-O shot. Guinness and Green is both unique and very delicious. Its first layer is a Guinness and Irish whiskey gelatin mix, topped off with a green gelatin layer and Irish cream. It’s a lot of fun to make and even more fun to drink!
Give gin a break
If you are a fan of a G&T but would like to give gin a miss for St Patrick’s Day, this is the recipe for you. The Leprechaun is a simple recipe that combines your favourite Irish whiskey with dry soda for a wonderfully invigorating flavour.
