Lucky Hour: St. Patrick’s Day Drinks

Happy Hump Day! To get you in the Irish mood, we’re going to share our favorite green drinks in honor of St. Patrick’s Day :) Did you know St. Patrick’s Day started out as a celebration of the introduction of Christianity in Ireland? Traditionally, the day was celebrated by going to church, wearing green, and ending any Lent restrictions previously made. Another little known fact: St. Patrick’s Day used to be associated with the color blue, and then later on green.

However you choose to celebrate this popular holiday, remember to wear green and get lucky!

Our Creative Manager’s favorite: The delicious Scooby Snack Shot! Famously named after Scooby’s favorite snack from classic cartoon series, “Scooby Doo, Where Are You!” The Scooby Snack Shot has a coconut taste and is great for those who don’t traditionally drink. Its green color comes from the use of Midori Melon Liqeur.

Scooby Snack recipe

1/2 oz Malibu® coconut rum
1/2 oz creme de bananes
1/2 oz Midori® melon liqueur
1/2 oz pineapple juice
1 1/2 oz whipped cream

Pour rum, creme de banane, melon liqueur and pineapple juice into a stainless steel shaker over ice. Add whipped cream, and shake; until well mixed and sufficiently chilled. Strain into an old-fashioned glass and shoot.

The Irish Car Bomb is a fun drink to do with a group of friends. Similar to any “car bomb”-esque drink, you take a shot of Bailey’s infused with whiskey, and drop it into a pint glass of Guinness and chug the drink! It may sound like a bad idea, but the creamy taste of Bailey’s as it mixes with the dark Guinness, creates a delicious drink that’s both easy to consume and fun to take!
Irish Car Bomb
3/4 pint Guinness® stout
1/2 shot Bailey’s® Irish cream
1/2 shot Jameson® Irish whiskey
Add the Bailey’s and Jameson to a shot glass, layering the Bailey’s on the bottom. Pour the Guinness into a pint glass or beer mug 3/4 of the way full and let settle. Drop the shot glass into the Guinness and chug. If you don’t drink it fast enough it will curdle and increasingly taste worse.
