The Lucky Leprechaun Cocktail

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the Lucky Leprechaun cocktail. One glass of this green goodness is guaranteed to make you do an Irish jig.

How do you celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day? How about a nice Lucky Leprechaun Cocktail? Honestly, here in Georgia, it would not be St. Patrick’s Day without mentioning Savannah. Back in the day the city would dye the entire Savannah River green in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. While I think this is an EPA issue to do so now, they still dye all the water in the gazillion fountains located around the town and have a huge St. Patrick’s Day parade, so it is still worth a visit during the season.Easy Leprechaun Cocktails JENRON DESIGNSIn honor of this fun Georgia tradition I wanted to share a bright green drink idea that tastes great and will have you doing a little jig in no time. Let’s be honest we will all drink entirely too many green beers, and Irish Car bombs for this holiday, LOL. Traditionally we think of having just an Irish whiskey or some type of Scotch which can also be very heavy, so why not lighten it up a bit with the Lucky Leprechaun cocktail? Making Lucky Leprechaun Cocktail JENRON DESIGNSThis particular drink can be made in large batches, which is perfect for large parties, or single pitchers for more intimate gatherings. It also still packs that Irish punch, but it won’t leave you feeling miserable the next day. They do tend to be a little bit on the sweeter side, since we are adding pineapple juice and Midori, but that Irish Whiskey, give s a nice bite at the finish.

Did you know? A leprechaun is a type of fairy of sorts, in Irish folklore. They are usually depicted as little bearded men, wearing a coat and hat, who partake in mischief. Sounds like the perfect drinking buddy to me, wink wink.

St. Patrick's Day Cocktail JENRON DESIGNSYou can garnish these sweet little cocktails with these easy pineapple shamrocks, which can be dyed green by soaking in food coloring overnight. Float a frozen shamrock on top of drink, to serve them perfectly chilled. Here I used a small shamrock cookie cutter, to cut out the shamrocks out of a pineapple, soaked them for a few hours in green food coloring and then froze them so they could double as ice cubes.

    Sounds and looks delicious! Definately want to try this!! On another note, Thank you for referring to St. Patrick’s Day as St. Patricks,’s Day and not St. Patty’s Day. As an Irish Catholic I appreciate you using the Saint Name correctly. I know its Petty, but I appreciate it. If you must shorten it Paddy not Patty. Daddy is a man and Patty is a woman!!!

  14. Love it! So colorful and green is my favorite color! Just read a post about Irish history and now this Irish drink. Will try it, thanks for the share
