ST. PATRICK’S DAY: Rock A Green Cocktail

Why drink inferior green beer on St. Patrick’s Day when you can have an emerald green cocktail instead? There’s no reason you have to limit St. Patrick’s Day libations to traditional celebratory drinks. Just stick to the green theme.

The Shamrocker cocktail, created by Hornitos tequila, is fun, fruity and as green as the Emerald Isle.


  • 1 part silver tequila
  • 1 part melon liqueur
  • 1/2 part triple sec or other orange liqueur
  • Splash of orange juice
  • Ice
  • Preparation
    1. Combine ingredients in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a rocks glass.
    2. Garnish with an orange slice—or go edgy with shamrock-shaped microgreens.
