4 Last-Minute St. Patrick’s Day Drink Recipes

We're just a couple of days away from St. Patrick's Day, and perhaps you're looking to drink something a little more inventive than green beer.  (Not that there's anything wrong with that!)

However, if you're looking for something a little outside of the box, check out these four cocktails! A few of these, and you’ll be jigging with the best of them!

Shamrock Sour Cocktail

Sure…it’s follows the “add food coloring” shortcut of green beer, but it’s still an underutilized alternative on St. Paddy’s Day.

Irish Flag Shot

Equal parts Irish cream, Licor 43 and green crème de menthe help create this smooth dessert shot.

Tipsy Leprechaun Cocktail

Speaking of dessert, this boozy milkshake combines the St. Pat’s trifecta: Jameson, Bailey’s and Guinness.

Irish Coffee

If all else fails, nothing beats an Irish Coffee topped with a mound of whipped cream.
