Cocktails and drinks to celebrate St. Patrick’s
St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday that commemorates the figure of St. Patrick, a preacher born in a Roman home in Scotland or Wales, who would have come to Ireland in the year 432 to evangelize. This tradition uses the color green to scare away the leperchauns, that is, goblins from Celtic mythology.
We know that green is the representative color of St. Patrick’s Day. You can make this beer at home. All you’ll need is a fairly light, green-colored beer You get your best pint of beer, add the beer, and the food coloring. Don’t overdo it with the coloring because you can create a very dark, weird green color.
A fruity version of the traditional shot. Light, creamy and with a rich fruit flavor because of the melon liquor.

60 ml of melon liquor
15 ml Irish whiskey
15 ml Irish cream (like Bailey’s)
