Put Down the Green Beer and Drink These 7 Green Drinks

© Dave Lauridsen

One of the more deplorable Saint Patrick’s Day traditions is dying beer green. If you absolutely need to drink something with a green hue, here are seven better options.

1. Emerald Palmers
These refreshing green tea-based mocktails would also be great spiked with gin.

2. Pepino’s Revenge
This sweet and savory tequila cocktails is flavored with fresh basil and garnished with cooling cucumber.

3. Lime-and-Cucumber Frappé
Perfect for those celebrating St. Patty’s Day in warmer climates, this zingy blender-whirred frappé is cold, frothy and refreshing.

4. Jade Cocktail
Sweet, melony Midori gives this cocktail its vibrant green color.

5. Basil Limeade Slushies
A splash of soda water makes these tart slushies pleasantly bubbly. A little rum would turn them into terrific cocktails.

6. Melon Sparkler with Tapioca Pearls
Mixing honeydew juice with fizzy Italian Moscato makes a delicious cocktail—especially with melon balls and chewy tapioca pearls.

7. Southern Exposure
Freshly juiced celery and lime juice give this bright, fresh Southside riff a gorgeous color.
