March 17th is right around the corner – and it’s time to turn our mind to celebrating all things Irish. From shamrock shakes to turning pints green, you really can go all out for the occasion. Of course, you can also make non alcoholic versions using juices, which are just as sweet and yummy. Make sure you have plenty of nice snacks to go around too – you don’t want your guests going hungry at a party.
You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate the day of all things green – so get in the party mood with these St Patrick’s Day Cocktails. Since blue and yellow are the colors that make green, you can also make blue or yellow cocktails too. Get your friends to help and you can have fun celebrating together. Don’t forget to get dressed up and paint your nails too!
