St. Patrick’s Day Cocktails

Saint Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick, is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland.


But it is a grand event celebrating Irish culture all around the world – whether you’re Irish or not!

It is often associated with drinking and having a good time, so what better way to do that than with an Irish drink?

Of course, you could stick to the classics like Guinness or (dyed) green beer or cider, but mixing up a few cocktails for your party is so much fun, and I’ve got a few for you to try!

Green Cocktails for St. Patrick’s Day

The following cocktails were not originally made for St. Patty’s Day, but, they are green, so why not?!

Jameson Whiskey Drinks

  • Delicious and creamy Irish Whiskey Milk Punch (known in Ireland as scáiltín) is an old Irish recipe that people enjoy over ice, or even as a hot toddy.
  • Irish Margaritas are simple yet flavorful, featuring Jameson Irish Whiskey and quality tequila – perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
  • Cuban Mojitos get a St. Patrick’s Day spin in this Irish Mojito Cocktail recipe with the addition of Jameson Irish Whiskey.

We have several desserts that have whiskey as an ingredient – why not use Jameson Irish Whiskey for a Paddy’s Day treat!

And who can resist a hot Irish coffee with cream floating on top? Not me!
