It’s the luckiest time of the year! Spring is the time of growth and new beginnings, and what’s a better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than creating some delicious (and maybe green) holiday drinks to serve to your patrons! Here are four delectable drinks you can make to fuel your lucky visitors!
A classic staple to all celebrations surrounding St. Patrick’s Day. It has the two most important aspects of the holiday — it’s green and it’s beer! Easy to make, just use your choice of beer — preferably light to show the color— and a few drops of green food coloring.
The Spiked Irishman
Something fresh and new is always welcomed on St. Patrick’s Day! This is a take on a mojito with a sparkling twist! Add mint, lime, cucumber, and a bit of simple syrup to some hard seltzer! A beautifully light and refreshing drink to have with all the festivities!
When you think of a cocktail from Ireland, you think of Irish coffee. A splendid combination of hot coffee, whiskey, sugar, and topped with cream, this drink is sweet, savory, and rich. Perfect to serve on the Irish holiday — after a long day of going to parades and pinching the non-green wearers!
Last but certainly not least, we have the Irish mule! This is a play on a Moscow mule, minus the vodka. The zing of ginger beer, a tart lime, and a shot of whiskey combined creates an experience to warm the souls in your establishment. Serving it in a copper mug is optional, however, it really does finish the look!
These four drinks will instantly make your location the pot o’ gold at the end of a busy and fun-filled day. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
