Some St. Patrick’s Day cocktails to get you though the weekend


ure, I could do a post about some adorable pot o’ gold cookies or a cute leprechaun craft, but we all know the real reason for the St. Patrick’s Day season: gettin’ your drink on. How else will you convincingly perform your Irish goodbye?

For those of us who run in fear when handed a pint of Guinness/cough syrup, here are some festive cocktails to get you in the spirit, and through the Greenville Avenue parade.

These actually sounds disgusting, but they look super cute. And sometimes that’s all that really matters.
