St. Patrick’s Day is all about the partying and drinking. Green beer might be the norm for this Irish celebration, but these  green drinks will quickly become your favorite St. Patty’s day beverages. The drinks are easy to make, budget-friendly, and perfect for other holidays like Christmas, Easter, and Halloween.

Spoon LSU brings to you a green party punch, a festive alcoholic option, and a spin on a classic mint shake.

Shamrock Punch – Who doesn’t love Kool-aid? This punch will amp up your favorite childhood drink. The mixture of lemon and lime with pineapple is the perfect combination for sour taste buds. It is also easy to serve to a large crowd on St. Patty’s Day. The addition of booze is optional.

Tropical Leprechaun – This tropical vodka drink will transport you to Hawaii. The Hawaiian Punch, lemonade, and fresh lime juice add the much needed punch to your vodka. If you like the blue Jolly Ranchers, you will fall in love with the Tropical Leprechaun.
