As if we needed another reason to drink, St. Patrick’s Day is this Sunday. For those unaware, St. Patrick was a fifth-century Christian missionary. He’s the patron saint of Ireland and even though he might not have actually banished all the snakes from Ireland (even though there are no snakes there), we celebrate his life and the work he did every March 17. We don’t do this by going to church and being moral. We do this by drinking pitchers of green beer, eating pounds of aged Irish cheddar, and sipping on Irish-themed cocktails.
If you’re most interested in the latter, check out some of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day-themed cocktails below.
