Mouth Party: 5 St. Patrick’s Day Cocktails to Help You Celebrate in Style

MIDORI

Let’s face it: St. Patrick’s day isn’t so much a holiday as an easy excuse to toss a few back – but hey! We aren’t complaining. This year, we’ve decided to amp up the creativity and serve up some classic cocktails with a SOA twist! So ditch the Guinness, drop the beer bong, and celebrate your St. Patty’s in style.

1. Midori Super Sour

Everyone knows this drink: bright green, fruity, and oh so tasty. This year, kick it up a notch and add some sour notes that’ll make your lips pucker faster than you can say “Kiss me, I’m Irish”. Start with 1.5oz of Midori Melon Liquer in a glass of your choosing. Add 1oz of your favorite vodka, 2oz of sweet and sour mix, and 1 oz lime juice. Here’s where it gets fun: instead of a dash of Sprite and a cherry garnish, substitute 1oz of lemon juice, a splash of club soda, and garnish with two lime wedges.

2. Flaming Grasshopper Shots

This one will be your standard bomb shot, but it’ll be like having a drink and a dessert all in one. Fill a shot glass most of the way with peppermint schnapps. Top with a tiny bit of Bacardi 151 (or any high proof, flammable liquor) and set to the side. Now, fill a draft glass with a chocolate beer of your picking. In case you can’t guess the rest, light the shot, drop it in your beer, and get ready to chug. The mint kick that comes at the end is refreshing and toasty.

3. Irish Coffee

This will be the easiest recipe on the list. Fill a standard mug halfway with a bold, dark coffee and the rest of the way with Bailey’s or another similar creamy alcohol (Rumchata works well too). Now here’s where the fun happens: prepare your own whipped cream (it’s easier than it sounds) and infuse it with a sweet liquer of your choice. Top with a few sprinkles of cinnamon and nutmeg and you’ve got yourself a cozy drink that’s bound to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

4. The Dublin Martini

We’re really hoping you know how to make a good martini. But if not, it’s a fool proof drink. For this recipe, make sure to use premium spirits because we won’t be using any juice to mask the taste of cheap liquor. If you make this will well liquors, you’ve been warned: it won’t be pretty. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with crushed ice. Add 2oz vodka and a 1/2oz of dry vermouth – or more depending on how bone dry you like your martini. Briefly set your concoction aside and pull out your favorite Irish whiskey. Pour 1/2-1oz of whiskey into a martini glass and lightly swirl it around to coat the entire glass. Dump the majority of the excess whiskey but leave a tiny (read: miniscule) bit at the bottom of your glass for an added kick. Strain your shaken martini into the glass and garnish with a twist of lemon (or lime, if you really want to go green).

5. Jameson and Ginger

This one is easy, sweet, and a nice departure from a typical 7 and 7. In a highball glass filled with ice, pour 2oz of Jameson whiskey. Add 1/2oz of Bushmills for an added punch. Fill the rest of the way with ginger ale. Then, add 2-3 dashes of Angostura bitters, depending on how sweet you prefer your drinks. Take a freshly cut lime wedge and lightly squeeze over the drink before dropping the wedge in. All that’s left is to Instagram a few pictures of your expertly made cocktail and enjoy.

Regardless of how your night turns out, make sure that you drink in moderation, cab or choose a designated driver, and always practice safe partying habits. In the comments, let us know some of your favorite St. Patrick’s day drinks and tell us if you try some of ours.

Stay inspired,
