St. Patrick's Day

Irish Flag Shooter

  • 1 oz. Brandy
  • 1 oz. Crème de Menthe
  • 1 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream (Irish Cream)

Layer the ingredients in the following order: Creme de Menthe, Irish Cream, Brandy. Shoot!


St. Patrick’s Day Grasshopper

  • 5 Quart Plastic Bucket of Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 3 shots of Creme de Menthe liquor
  • 1 shot of Creme de Cacao liquor
  • 1 shot of Irish Whiskey

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and knead together with two large spoons, or use a stand mixer and knead with your bread hook attachment. Top with whipped cream and serve.


Irish Mojito

  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • Small handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 ounces Bacardi Limon
  • 2 teaspoons (more or less) granulated sugar
  • Ice
  • Club soda (a splash)
  • Creme de Menthe (a splash)
  • Lime wedge, for garnish

Squeeze half a lime into a cocktail shaker and muddle together with mint leaves using the end of a wooden spoon. Add Bacardi, sugar and ice. Shake. Strain into martini glass and top off with a splash of club soda and a drizzle of Creme de Menthe. To top off this green drink, garnish with a lime wedge.


Drunk Shamrock Shake

You are exactly right if you are wondering if this sugary-sweet, whiskey infused beverage is inspired by the annual McDonald’s classic – it is! Except with a lot more whiskey and a little less mint, but that doesn’t mean it’s any better or worse, just a different take on an old, delicious classic.

Irish Car Bomb Jello Shots

Because nothing beats this St. Paddy’s Day classic, except maybe turning it into a Jello Shot.
