For a special drink on St. Patrick’s Day, use a green slice of kiwi as a garnish.

You can also muddle a kiwi and then add the spirits. Here’s a suggestion from Corzo Tequila:

Ingredients Per Cocktail

  • 1-1/2 parts silver tequila
  • 1 kiwi, peeled, plus second kiwi for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon simple syrup
  • Ice


1. Muddle kiwi in a cocktail shaker. Add other ingredients and shake well with ice.
2. Strain into a Collins glass. Garnish with a kiwi slice.

If you want the cocktail to be as green as the kiwi, add a sparse drop of food coloring. A little goes a long way.

Beyond cocktails, think green garnishes for St. Patrick’s Day: herbs, green veggies, green condiments (gherkins, herb or wasabi mayo, wasabi mustard).
