say no to green beer.

10 green sips for St. Patrick's Day!
from top:  St. Germain + Mint Margarita via Waiting on Martha for Sweet Lemon // Lime Sherbet Punch via Paula Deen // Kiwi Lime Mojito via The Merrythought // Tequila Mint Limeade via New South Food Company // Basil Lime Cocktail via The Italian Dish // Green, Green Grass Champagne Cocktail via Marthafied // Green Apple Ginger Martini via Gourmande in the Kitchen // Mojito Jello Shots via A Beautiful Mess {I know this isn't technically a sip, but it is booze-related...} // Sour Apple Champagne Cocktail via Will Cook for Smiles // Honey Rum Fizz via Design*Sponge + Spoon Fork Bacon

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, I decided to pull ten green cocktail recipes to jazz up your beverage selection. Green beer may be fun, but the green teeth which come after are not. These ten options will keep the green factor high without that unfortunate side effect. {Don't drink? Don't worry. A few of these cocktails could actually be made as mocktails!} 

Is St. Patrick's Day a big to-do near you? I wouldn't say I'm crazy for this green holiday, but it is fun to don some green--and sip it too. {cv} and I experienced St. Patrick's Day in South Boston, but it is on my bucket list to see the river dyed green in Chicago. I think I'm too old to appreciate a crazy Savannah St. Pat's, but I have heard great things about their festivities too. Have a safe + festive St. Patrick's Day! xoxo {av}

P.S. If you're in need of some other fun drink ideas, I have plenty on my "sip sip" Pinterest board!


  1. If you make it to Chicago next year, let me know! It'll be my first Chicago St Patty's as well!

  2. If you ever come to Chicago for that let me know! Not gonna lie, though, I went last year and it's a little under-whelming to be honest!

  3. These look soooo thirst quenching!! Of course when I get to the bar to order one, I'll probably forget these recipes... so I better take notes!

  4. Super cute ideas-- and I love the fact that my mouth won't be green! Hope you have a fun St. Patty's Day!

  5. MUCH better suggestions than green beer! No self respecting brew purveyor would put food coloring into his/her best beer, so you know that the green stuff not only will turn your teeth green, but it's the junk they can't sell normally but people will buy on St. Paddy's because, well, it's green. That St. Germain + Mint Margarita is going on the top of my list.
