Thursday March 17th   is St Patrick’s Day.   If you choose to celebrate the Luck of the Irish, and are tired of the usual suspects  - Guinness, Jameson’s Irish Whiskey or Bailey’s, we’ve got a couple of new green cocktails to brighten up your week!

Lucky 75

Using your favourite green liqueur ( Midori Melon, or Sourpuss Green Apple) splash some in the bottom of a pretty flute glass.

Top up with your favourite sparkling wine or Prosecco and a slice of melon or green apple, and Voila!  A bright green fresh cocktail!

Or, if you’re health conscious, you could combine your green smoothie with a shot of vodka!

 Ketel One Green Mary

1 oz Ketel One Family-Made Vodka

3.5 oz freshly juiced equal parts of celery and cucumber

.5 oz freshly squeezed lime

1 pinch of rock salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and dried chili flakes


Add all ingredients to the glass, stir well, add ice. Garnish with a salted cucumber slice.

Recipe by Ketel One.

However, if you’re still wanting your Irish whiskey though, why not tart it up a bit and make one of these?  It's not green, but we guarantee it will be festive!

Irish Canadian Old Fashioned

2 1/2 oz Jameson

tsp maple syrup

3-4 dashes of bitters

juice from half a lemon

twist or orange


Combine the maple syrup and bitters in the bottom of a mixing glass, stir until well combined. Fill 2/3 of the glass with ice, then squeeze the lemon over the ice. Pour in Jameson and garnish with a twist or orange.

If that still doesn't tickle your Irish fancy,  blend up a frosty Margarita.  Afterall, it is green!
