Irish coffee in green cup and special cupcakes for St Patrick s Day.

This weekend is St. Patrick’s Day and the parties are already going strong at your local watering holes as expected. For those who wish to keep the party at home, we’ve got some cocktails below that will elevate this year’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.

We just recently published a post about Irish whiskey for St. Patrick’s Day, which doesn’t make up the base for a bulk of our drinks below. Instead, we have cocktails that feature tequila, vodka, fresh fruits, vegetables, and more.

We tried to keep to the theme of green per the rules of the holiday but there are some color deviations. That said, we believe you’ll have yourselves a grand time with any of the offerings below. And if you can’t tell by the names of the drinks, they were all inspired by St. Paddy’s Day in some fashion. If you require a boost of luck, always go for the green garnish.

Keep scrolling to check out our selection of St. Patrick’s Day cocktails below.

NOTE: This post will be gradually updated up until 6 PM ET today.
