This drink is a perfect St. Patrick’s Day Green Cocktail. At Oh My! Creative I believe every celebration needs a signature cocktail!
There are many green drinks that can be made for St. Patrick’s Day. I like to call this drink the Emerald Sunrise Cocktail!
This drink is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations and is made with five ingredients and is the perfect green vodka cocktail. The great thing about this green drink recipe is that it does not use green food coloring to achieve its green coloring. This is a naturally colored green drink. The combination of alcohol and mixers gives this drink its bright shade of green!

Green Cocktail Garnish Ideas
Be colorful with your St. Patrick’s Day drink garnishes…think rainbow colors! Use mint, orange slices, maraschino cherries, or lime slices to add a splash of color to the drink.
Slice and cut oranges and limes ahead of time and place in sectional dishes on the bar. Also, put 2-3 maraschino cherries on a toothpick or small skewer and have them ready to go.
