As I am sure you are aware, St. Patrick’s Day is known as one of the biggest drinking holidays of the year. It’s a day that everyone can claim to be a little bit Irish, right? To help kickoff the festivities, I’ve put together a roundup of my favorite St. Patrick’s Day cocktails that will have you seeing orange, white, and green. Erin go Bragh!
