What Liquor Is Green?
There are quite a few different types of liquor that are dyed green. And many of the drinks in this list are made green from other ingredients. For example, the spicy cucumber margarita is green from the cucumber peel.
There is only one liqueur in the world that is green from completely natural sources: Green Chartreuse. And that name comes from the Grande Chartreuse – a monastery in France where it is produced nearby.
You’ll find other green liquor types, including Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker and Kinky Green Liqueur.
And you can always use food coloring to make your drink as green as you want it to be!
Green Cocktail Glasses
If you’re going to serve these green alcoholic drinks at a party, then you need to serve them in the appropriate glasses.
The best way to know which type of glass to use is to look at the recipe. They will usually tell you. Like how you should use a martini glass for a martini, for example.
After you settle on which glass to use, find some cocktail glass charms. This helps everyone identify their glass so that they don’t get mixed up between people.
But if you’re not serving this at a party, you can use whatever glass you want.
Types of Alcoholic Drinks
What types of drinks did I include in this list?
You’ll find a little bit of everything. I included a few different margaritas, some minty mojitos, and of course some martinis too.
There are also a lot of mixed drinks on the list that don’t fit neatly into a category. But they are so good that you’ll throw parties just to share them with your friends.

Green Alcoholic Drinks
Green cocktail drinks are not only visually stunning but also incredibly refreshing and flavorful. These vibrant libations are often made with a combination of spirits like vodka, gin, or tequila, along with mixers such as lime juice, pineapple juice, or sour mix.
The signature green color is usually achieved by incorporating ingredients like melon liqueur, mint, or kiwi. Whether it's a classic mojito, a tropical midori sour, or a creative cucumber basil martini, green cocktails are the perfect choice for adding a touch of fun to any gathering or celebration.
This Zesty Cucumber Gimlet is a refreshing cocktail made with puréed cucumber and limes, gin, and blackberry-cucumber seltzer. These go down VERY easy on a hot summer day, and are a great drink to whip up for a few friends.
