St. Paddy’s Day is right around the corner, which means lots o’ green! If green beer isn’t for you, give these green cocktails a try!

Green Delight
1˝ parts Hiram Walker® Melon Liqueur
1 part Beefeater® Gin
1 part Hiram Walker® Triple Sec

Shake all the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into Martini glass. Garnish with orange wheel.

Minty Peach Sangria
(can be served as a pitcher)
3 parts Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc
3 parts peach nectar
1 part Absolut Mandrin
Several mint leaves (for every one serving, use 8-10 mint leaves)

Directions: Slap the mint leaves between your palms to release oils, then drop into glass. Add ice and remaining ingredients and stir.

What do these horrendous sounding drinks have to do with Connecticut? Or St. Patrick's Day for that matter...

I made a batch of Irish Red beer. It will be ready to drink after one more week in the bottles. That's my St. Patty's Day drink.

Thanks for spelling it Paddy's Day! Nothing drives me more crazy than Patty's Day lol.

Im not into cocktails or putting green in my beer so I stick to my staple diet of Guinness.

The only green drink I ever really drank was a Fat Frog, I did Google it and found this.

But what the Ivory Coast has to do with St Patrick's Day I will never know =)

I did have green jello shots one year
I usually drink the classic Guinness stout. You can't go wrong.

The only green drink I have around st. pats usually is the McDs shamrock shake...

BTW: I read somewhere online they have a guiness RED available, must only be in UK or europe or something. I have never seen it.

The Red Stout is a seasonal from last year....you can get it in cans in the states...in the fall only. I have not heard if they are going to have it again this year.

Yes Patty is a female name. In Ireland the diminutive for Patrick is Paddy.
