4. Green Margarita

You can make the perfect green alcoholic drinks for this special day by following the recipe in the picture below. A margarita, as we all know, is a simple, delicious and citrusy drink that’s perfect for getting merry and feeling classy at the same time. Also, tequila is a very good anti-depressant, so I’ll be having nine of those, please.

5.  Absinthe

I mean, there’s not much to say with this one. We all know it. We’ve all seen the fairy. We know she’s green, and probably Irish too. Just be careful with this one – maybe save it for the end of the night.

6. Sparkling Shamrock

Just add some pear vodka and some elderflower liqueur for a light, sweet and green base. Then add cucumber, mint and some lemonade or soda (I’d personally go for some Prosecco though).It’s easy to make, impossible to get wrong and incredibly delicious.

7. Guinness and Green Jelly Shots

These take a bit more prep time than all aforementioned green alcoholic drinks but they will definitely be worth the slight hassle and you’ll probably have just as much fun making them (especially if you’ve been following my drinking regime) as you will consuming them. Follow this link for the Guinness & Green recipe.

9. Matcha Honey Spritzer

You know that green plant everyone’s talking about at the moment? Matcha? Well, it’s not exclusive to coffee shops and it shouldn’t be either. Just add half a teaspoon of matcha powder to a teaspoon of water and then mix in some honey till it’s dissolved.  Then add ice, dry white wine, and some ginger ale.
