St. Patrick's Day Picks & Cozy Cocktails With Drizly

St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner. The older we get, the less we want to go out and celebrate at the bar. Why not have a party at home? Impress your friends with these cocktails with Drizly.

Shamrock Shake Smash

This festive take on an ice cream float combines the classic smooth flavor of Guinness Stout with the funky (but familiar) McDonald's Shamrock Shake. It's like your very own pot of gold, no rainbow required.

The Pickleback Shot

Bartender Reggie Cunningham of the Bushwick Country Club bar in Brooklyn is credited with naming and popularizing the Pickleback shot in May 2006 after a customer requested a drink of pickle brine. Reggie suggested a shot of whiskey first, followed by the shot of pickle brine. The unusual combination of whiskey and pickle juice has become a favorite at bars everywhere since. [Editor's note: I loveeeee pickleback shots. Sometimes I ask for just the pickle juice when I'm a bar. - BT]

Not feeling the St. Patrick's Day festivities? Also not feeling this unseasonably cold weather we're having? Try out one of these cozy cocktails!

Blanche Chaud

Herbaceous green chartreuse and rich chocolate is an unexpected but delightful combination that can never go wrong. The classic version of this drink with milk or dark hot chocolate is an apres-ski favorite in the French and Swiss Alps. We threw in our own little twist and opted for white chocolate resulting in a sweeter more sugary mixture. 

Classic Hot Toddy

Dating back to the 1800's this timeless drink is known as the perfect night-cap to end a chilly winter day. Some even swear it's the best way to soothe a sore throat. So whether you're fending off a cold, or thawing out by the fire, mixing up a classic like this is sure to warm you up from the inside out.
