Happy St Patrick’s Day!

If you’re heading out tonight, good for you. And if you’re not, why not stay in and rustle up some delicious Paddy’s Day cocktails?

We’ve put together a list of a few delicious Paddy’s Day-inspired cocktails to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. Enjoy!

Irish Cream Mint Martini 

Because who among us doesn’t have a bottle of Baileys floating around the house?

You will need:

  • Baileys Irish Cream
  • Creme de menthe liqueur (or failing that, vodka and some crushed mint)
  • Fresh cream
  • Ice
  • Chocolate shavings


Add two servings of Baileys, one serving of creme de menthe or vodka, and about 40ml of cream to a cocktail shaker with ice.

Shake well and strain into a pretty glass. Add more cream to the top and dust with chocolate shavings.

St Patrick’s Punch

Fruity, light, and bound to send you on your way.

You will need:

  • Vodka
  • Rum
  • Lemonade
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Lime
  • Pineapple
  • A sprig of mint
  • 7up
  • Ice


Stir all ingredients in a large pitcher or bowl, using four times as much non-alcohol drink as alcoholic. Blitz the fruit in a blender before adding, if that’s your style.

Add more vodka and rum as necessary. Enjoy.

Spicy Snake Mojito 

Because St Patrick didn’t banish all the snakes, wha?

You will need:

  • Rum
  • Mint leaves
  • Lime
  • Jalapeños
  • Sparkling water
  • Ice


Muddle the mint leaves, lime, and as many jalapeños as you see fit in a long glass with some ice.

Add two servings of white rum and finish with sparkling water. Line the glass rim with sugar and serve.
