Three Cocktails to Make This St. Patrick’s Day

We’ve handpicked these festive cocktail recipes to help you plan a memorable St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Why not treat the occasion as an opportunity to try a new type of liquor? Our liquor store in Downtown Vancouver stocks the liquors and liqueurs you need to mix fancy cocktails that will impress your guests.

  1. Green Dublin Apple Cocktail

You can master the basics of mixology with this three-ingredient St. Patrick’s Day version of the appletini. Swap Irish whiskey for the typical vodka to deliver a deeper and earthier flavour. Stay true to the holiday’s theme of everything green by adding green sour apple schnapps. The addition of white cranberry juice creates afternotes of tartness while not diminishing the green colour of the schnapps. If you choose to include the apple slice garnish, toss the slices first in lemon juice to prevent the fruit from browning.

  1. Spicy Mint Avocado Margarita

Avocados are the signature fruit of the 21st century, and they serve as a smooth green base for this green margarita. This cocktail is certain to stimulate your guests with a daring blend of heat, mint and fruitiness. Start by mashing avocado with jalapeno slices, lime juice and mint. Next, pour in blanco tequila, orange liqueur and simple syrup. Strain the mix into an ice-filled, salt-rimmed serving glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint.

  1. Gun Runner

Take your bartending game to the next level with the gun runner. This green St. Patrick’s Day cocktail slides smoothly across your palate because it has an egg white blended in. This is a bartender’s trick for creating a creamy drink without influencing flavour or adding many calories. Green chartreuse liqueur ensures the mandatory green colour, and the Bombay Sapphire gin will have you dancing an Irish jig.
