iStock_000018483253LargeSt Patrick’s Day is right around the corner! This year we’re opting out of the green beer and celebrating the best of green cocktails you can make right at home.

Orange Chocolate Dream

Just because you’re wearing green, doesn’t mean you need to be drinking 100% green, as long as it’s Irish, you’re a-ok! This creamy martini-like libation made with white chocolate liqueur, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Cointreau and cocoa powder and sugar is sure to make you want to keep the celebrations running all night long. You’ll find the full recipe on the Vancouver Observer.

Herbal Remedy, Emerald Mary and Irish Grasshopper

Whether you want a something refreshing with mint, with a little spicy edge or prefer to get a little more fruity with your St Patty’s concoction, these three selections on the National Post are sure to give you the right combination to appease your inner Irish!

Kiwi Piña Colada

If the mercury rises, be ready with this magical drink from down south in Puerto Rico! This mixture of rum, pineapple juice, coconut cream, heavy cream, kiwis and crushed ice make for a perfect home-patio pairing. Find the full instructions over on Toronto’s Hip Urban Girl.
