5 Unique Cocktails for Your St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

St. Patricks Day is upon us! The day actually started as a religious festival in the early 17th century as a way to honor Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. While it’s still a religious (and National) holiday in Ireland, it’s definitely more of a drinking event here in the United States. If you’re making preparations for your own celebrations this weekend, here are a few cocktails that are worth mixing up.
