Not sure what to drink on St. Patrick’s Day?

Just read this—you’ll be well on your way

to finding the answer,

the perfect elixir

for imbibing on this Irish holiday.

Though Saint Patrick—one of the patron saints of Ireland—wasn’t Irish himself, his namesake holiday has transformed into an all-out annual celebration of Irish culture. From limericks and leprechauns to rainbows and green drinks, there are many ways people choose to celebrate St. Paddy’s every March 17. One of the most popular ways? Raising a glass, of course.

Looking for some magical St. Patrick’s Day drinks that aren’t your typical green beer or Irish coffee? Think of this as your guide to the pot of gold at the end of the cocktail rainbow. 

Pot of Gold Mimosas

The Blue Curaçao mixed with the OJ gives this St. Patrick’s Day drink its green hue. So basically, these are mimosas, but with a little extra magic.
