3 Cocktails for St Patrick's Day 2023

By Kieran Brennan | Assistant Buyer: Beer & Spirits

Celebrate St Patrick’s Day 2023 in style with some mouth-watering cocktails inspired by Ireland's national day, March 17th. This trio of classic cocktail recipes, each with a green twist in honour of the occasion, are easy to make, taste great and look the part too!


Green Jersey Margarita

Serves 4


  1. Put a little salt on a saucer, then wipe the rim of your martini glass with lime juice.
  2. Turn the glass upside down in the salt and twist to coat.
  3. Stir the ingredients and a little ice together or put them in a cocktail shaker to combine.
  4. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Serve with a slice of lime.


Expert tip: Just about any "green" juice, such as simple store-bought apple juice, will work for this recipe. However, if you're feeling adventurous you can make up your own  juice - you'll need two green apples, a cucumber, two limes and a generous handful of spinach. Juice all the ingredients together or simply blend and strain.
