6 Greeeen Drinks for this Patty’s Day Weekend

That's how you green

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner folks. It’s a day to commemorate Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland and also the introduction of Christianity in Ireland. For one day, everybody leaves the restrictions (the rules of eating and alcohol for those who fast before Easter) aside and celebrates. These celebrations of course include drinks, shamrocks and the colour green! Now it’s the holiday that has made green drinks popular. Normally you’d be squeamish if you’d have a green beer placed in front of you, but it’s no fun if you don’t sport a green drink in your hand on St. Patty’s Day.

1. Green Apple Cocktail

Because how can we leave beer out? We wouldn’t be partying all night if not for the beer.

 

Psst… The green colour comes from these ingredients – Green Chartreuse, Green Crème de Menthe, and Midori Melon Liqueur. You do the math now.
