Fuzzy Leprechaun Cocktail
This Fuzzy Leprechaun drink recipe by @beingsummershores is super simple and is perfectly sweet (and green) for the holiday. Just combine Peach Schnapps, Blue Curacao, your favorite vodka, and orange juice with ice. This Fuzzy Leprechaun recipe from Yummly also includes some pineapple juice. When you shake it up, the liquid will turn a bright green. For an added treat, you can rub lime juice on the rim and add some edible green glitter.
There are only three ingredients in this green mimosa by @thelongweekender, but it’s a fun and delicious start to your St. Patrick’s Day morning. Just like a regular mimosa, you’ll start with some orange juice, but you’ll also add a splash of Blue Curacao to make it turn green. Then, top with champagne and sip.
The Grasshopper Drink
TikToker @join_jules demonstrates how to make this creamy, minty St. Patrick’s Day drink that’s sure to please. Pour a bit of heavy cream, creme de cacao, and creme de menthe in a glass with ice. Shake until well blended (it should look about the same color as a Shamrock Shake), and pour into a serving glass.
Top with freshly grated chocolate and a mint leaf before serving. Another option, which will make your drink more mint chocolaty, is to add some chocolate sauce to your glass before pouring in your mixture. Your final drink will look like this grasshopper recipe from Yummly.
Sour Apple Slushie
You’ll need a blender to whip up this Sour Apple Slushie drink by @stkkmoney. First, fill your blender halfway with ice. Add in about a half dozen green apple Jolly Ranchers, Sour Apple Pucker, and apple juice. Blend until it’s the consistency of a slushie, then pour into your favorite serving glass.
A non-alcoholic green apple St. Patrick’s Day drink you could serve as well is this lemonade spritzer recipe from Yummly. Mix together lemon lime soda with lemonade and a green apple mixer. Add in some green food coloring to really get an Insta-worthy shade going.
For a warm hug in a glass, try out this Irish coffee recipe from @thewhyteelephant. Start out by pouring an ounce of Irish cream into a glass. Then, add an ounce or so of Irish whiskey, and top it off with some strong black coffee or espresso. For something a little stronger, Yummly has this Boyfriend Irish Coffee recipe. Instead of cream, you’ll want to add some Guinness in with your coffee and whiskey. Add simple syrup if you like it sweet.
The Irish Apple Cocktail
TikToker @lovelyoneontheinside has created a tangy, delicious drink recipe that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Start with an ounce or two of Irish whiskey (of course), and mix with a couple of ounces of apple and lemon juice. Add a bit of simple syrup to sweeten, then shake with ice. Serve with fresh green apple slices. For a green apple Irish mule, just add ginger beer to the mix.
Irish Slammer Drink
This Irish Slammer drink by @greexican isn’t for the faint of heart. First, fill up a wide-rimmed glass with Guinness or another Irish porter. Then, mix Jameson whiskey and Bailey’s into a shot glass. When you’re ready, drop the shot right into the beer glass and drink.
If you’re looking for something a little more tame, this St. Patrick’s Day cocktail recipe from Yummly also uses Guinness. Mix your stout with cream of coconut, Irish whiskey, cinnamon bark syrup, and Angostura bitters.
Looking for something light and refreshing? If yes, you might want to try this spring spritzer recipe from TikToker @yellowbellykelly. Either take tequila or vodka (your choice) and mix with fresh mint, lemon juice, melon liqueur, and pineapple juice into a cup. Add your ice and shake before pouring into your glass. Garnish with any leftover mint leaves.
Irish Redhead Drink
This Irish Redhead drink by @cocktailswithvictoria isn’t overly sweet. You’ll mix a couple of ounces of Irish Whiskey, fresh lime and lemon juice, and a splash of grenadine (for the “redhead” part), then mix with ice. Yummly has an Irish Redhead recipe that’s slightly different, but also only requires four ingredients — whiskey, strawberries, demerara sugar, and blackcurrant juice. Pour into a serving glass and top with a maraschino cherry.
For all the lucky girls, try making this Lucky’s Brew drink from TikToker @thepixelbar. Think of this cocktail as a boozy version of Lucky Charms cereal. In a shaker, add peppermint schnapps, Irish whiskey, Baileys, and just the cereal part of Lucky Charms. Then, mix, strain into a glass, and top off with your choice of milk. Once that’s ready, garnish with all of the Lucky Charms marshmallows you can fit on top of your drink.
This recipe is almost like Yummly’s Lucky Russian cocktail, which is also milk-based. You could even make your version a Lucky Charms Russian by putting marshmallows on the rim with caramel syrup.
