The color green is synonymous with St. Patrick’s Day and all things Irish. We turn rivers green and even play tricks on our kids with green food and milk. People of Irish descent enjoy the day of the “wearing of the green ”. In fact, not only the Irish but parade and party-goers all over will wear green to celebrate. It has even been said that wearing green makes you invisible to pesky leprechauns who will sneak up and pinch you. So why not enjoy green margaritas for St Patricks Day, too?
Green margaritas for St Patricks Day can help you get into the Irish spirit with some spirits of your own and some of the easiest cocktails to make.
Why stop at wearing green? Why not toast to this uniquely Irish/American celebration by drinking green as well? We aren’t talking green beer here either, but something a little extra.
Your green drinking this St. Patrick’s day could be a green margarita. The origins of St. Patrick’s Day and all things green didn’t begin in the US, but we can take credit for the St. Patrick’s Day party as we know it.
Now it’s time to ditch the green food coloring and go with a drink that can be made naturally green and uniquely ours. A standard margarita already has lime as its green ingredient, but why stop there.
These 20 green margaritas for St Patricks Day take advantage of not only lime but natural green ingredients like avocado, cucumber, and even green juice. Some of these margaritas are even healthy!
Start your celebration with a green juice margarita made, even made as a mocktail and then kick it into gear by happy hour with something like the green jalapeno margarita. Green doesn’t have to be boring.
