The 10 Best Cocktails for Saint Patrick’s Day

Irish Eyes will be smiling alright

Saint Patrick’s Day cocktails are often green or made with whiskey, and we absolutely love the creative mixology that is brought about by this holiday! Here are some of our favorite cocktails to get you in the Irish spirit.

10 of the best cocktails for Saint Patrick's Day

As soon as March comes around, the Brio Blog becomes host to a number of cocktails for Saint Patrick’s Day. Some are your conventional green or Irish Whiskey cocktails, while others experiment with liquors you don’t typically associate with the Emerald Isle.

So, whether you’re looking for a signature cocktail for your Saint Patrick’s Day party, or just sick of boring green beer, this list of cocktails for Saint Patrick’s Day is sure to put a jig in your step.

 

Irish Redhead

Image / Recipe from // Brio Drink of the week

When it comes to Whiskey Cocktails, the Irish Redhead is simply one of our favorites. It’s also one of the Brio Blog’s most popular cocktail creations. With a flavor palate that is fairly similar to a Whiskey Ginger, the Irish Redhead cocktail gets its stamp of approval from our very own resident ginger.

 

Tipperary Cocktail

Image / Recipe from //

When you want to put an Irish spin on any cocktail, it usually means adding in Irish Whiskey, and this Tipperary Cocktail did just that. Named after County Tipperary, this twist on the Bijou cocktail nixed gin in favor of Jameson and we couldn’t love it more!

 

Shamrock Sour Cocktail

Image // Brio Drink of the week / Recipe from // Pizzazzerie

This cocktail originally came to us from Courtney from Pizzazzerie. The Shamrock Sour recipe is a fun take on the traditional Whiskey Sour, which calls for Irish Whiskey and green food coloring. If you want a very green cocktail for Saint Patrick’s Day, this would be the one.

 

The Irish Derby

Image / Recipe from // Serious Eats

This cocktail might not be green, but it sure will do the trick. Irish whiskey is the star of this vintage cocktail mashup. Drink enough of these Derbies and you will surely be the life of the Céilí this Saint Patrick’s Day.

 

Basil Gin Smash

Image / Recipe from // Brio Drink of the week

No need to go green with envy over someone else’s cocktail! The Basil Gin Smash makes a delicious Saint Patrick’s Day cocktail alternative for folks who aren’t fans of Whiskey. Made with Hendrick’s Gin, it ain’t your Daddy’s Saint Patrick’s Day cocktail.

 

Irish Julep

Image / Recipe from // Real House Moms

When it comes to making cocktails for Saint Patrick’s Day, many are variations of American favorites, like this take on the Mint Julep. You never know, you might like it better this way.

 

Mint Gin Spritz

Image / Recipe from // Brio Drink of the week

The Mint Gin Spritz is an excellent whiskey alternative for a Saint Patrick’s Day cocktail. It’s simple, a little green, and seriously refreshing. This herbaceous and effervescent cocktail is sure to tickle your fancy.

 

Irish Coffee

Image / Recipe from // Brio Drink of the week

Who would like a Tipple for dessert? This Irish Coffee recipe is one of our absolute favorite nightcap cocktails. You’ll be cuddled up on the couch watching The Quiet Man enjoying this bevy in no time.

 

Irish Cream & Mint Iced Mocha

Image / Recipe from // Frugal Foodie Mama

If you have a bit of a cocktail sweet tooth, this Irish Cream & mint Iced Mocha will do just the trick. How can you go wrong with chocolate, mint, coffee, and Baileys Irish cream? You just can’t!

 

The Baby “Guinness” Shot

Image / Recipe from // Creative Culinary

Who doesn’t love a good pint of Guinness now and then? Well, it might not be a real wee-baby Guinness, but this floated shot layers chilled Bailey’s Irish Creme Liqueur on top of Kahlua to create that iconic Guinness look.

Japanese Whiskey Takes Market By Storm

The New Wave of Whiskey: Japanese Whiskey Takes Market By Storm

The world of whiskey is getting wider

Some of the world’s best whiskeys are made in…Japan? The Land of the Rising Sun is becoming a big player on the World Stage of Whiskey.

Japanese Distillers Take Whiskey Market By Storm

Image from Sydney Bar Week // The Land of the Rising Sun is becoming a big player on the World Stage of Whiskey.

Japan. Home of beautiful sights, awe-inspiring history & culture, and award winning whiskey tradition. You read that right. Japan is becoming a big player on the world stage of Whiskey.

Japanese Whiskey has been growing in popularity in the U.S. over the last few years, and we can see why. Americans love whiskey! Our thirst for bourbon and whiskey is a powerful one, and it is also an expensive one.

Prices for Japanese whiskey run the gamut from anywhere around $20 bucks a bottle to close to a couple grand. A bottle of 1960 Karuizawa whiskey sold at a Hong Kong auction for $118,500 last August.

Don’t let the sticker shock completely turn you off to the idea of trying Japanese Whiskey. There are plenty of fantastic Japanese Whiskey options that you can get in the U.S. for less than $100 a bottle. Here are some great Japanese Whiskies you can get without breaking the bank.

 

Suntory Whisky Toki (~$30)

The New Wave of Whiskey

Image from // Suntory

If you want to jump into the world of Japanese whiskey without taking a chunk out of your wallet, Suntory Whisky Toki is a great start. This whiskey is 1) widely available state side and 2) under $40 depending on where you live (We can get it here in NC for $30 plus tax). This light golden whiskey is subtly sweet with a spicy finish, and has notes of honey and vanilla. Suntory Whisky Toki can be enjoyed neat or try it in a cocktail like a Highball or Whiskey Sour.

 

Hibiki Japanese Harmony (~$65)

The New Wave of Whiskey

Image from // Suntory

Like single malts? Give Hibiki Japanese Harmony a try! The Hibiki is a light, young, blended whiskey that is aged in Mizunara Japanese oak casks. It is easy to drink and has a subtle spiciness of cinnamon and clove. The sweetness of this whiskey makes it a little more approachable for new Whiskey drinkers, but it could be a little too sweet for some folks. It is definitely a decent introduction to the Hibiki blends.

 

Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt (~$70)

The New Wave of Whiskey

Image from // tabelog

Matured in sherry wood you say? Sign us up. The Taketsuru Pure Malt is a blended malt whiskey that is aged about 10 years to give it a smooth, rich, and clean mouthfeel. The whiskey has just the right amount of sweetness from Sherried fruit, but not a lot of smokiness. It has a fruity richness that lingers in your mouth with a slight touch of Espresso flavor. This is one of our favorite whiskies to splurge on so far.

 

Suntory Hakushu 12 years old (~$85)

The New Wave of Whiskey

Image from // Suntory

Fans of smoky whiskey, I think you might find Hakushu 12 years old to your liking. They call Hakushu a “green and fresh” whiskey, and it is very much a spot-on description. This whiskey has a pleasing aroma that is reminiscent of the forests of its birthplace. It has more of an herbal palate with just a touch of fruitiness, and it has that smoke you expect from a good whiskey. The Hakushu 12 year is one of the best Japanese Whiskies you can get under $100. Be prepared to fall in love with this whiskey.

 

Yamazaki 12 years old(~$85)

The New Wave of Whiskey

Image from // andersnoren

Yamazaki is the number 1 single malt whiskey in Japan for good reason! This whiskey gets a lot of its character from the use of vanilla, citrus fruits, and Mizunara oak. Yamazaki 12 year is a light bodied whiskey that is comparable to a fruitier Highland whiskey. It is worth a taste if you can find it near you.
