St Patrick's Day Cocktail Recipes

By Paul Barry | Assistant Buyer: Beer & Spirits

For the second year running, we’re celebrating St Patrick’s day from home, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate in style. So this year it’s time to don your apron and mix up some mouth-watering cocktails inspired by the day. We have put together some classic cocktail recipes, with a green twist, to help you set the scene this St Patrick’s Day.

 

Green Jersey Margarita

 

Method

  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.

 

This recipe serves 4. Just about any green juice will work with this recipe, like simple store-bought apple juice. If you are feeling adventurous you can make up your own ‘green juice’ with 2 green apples, 1 cucumber, 2 limes and a generous handful of spinach. Either juice the ingredients or blend and strain.
