7 Easy St. Patrick’s Day Cocktails You Need to Try

On Friday the 17th, the Irish in  particular, commemorate St. Patrick and his quest to convince the Irish pagans to convert to Christianity. Why does everything turn green then? Shamrocks are to blame and Pat too: he used the three-leaved clover to describe the Holy Trinity to the skeptics. And why is it the perfect day to make cocktails? Christians are allowed a cheat day during Lent – to drink, eat and celebrate!

These 7 cocktails are delicious and perfect to make on St. Patrick’s day – enjoy!
