Drink in the green this Saint Patrick's Day.
Saint Patrick's Day is officially Monday, but serious partyers will no doubt be celebrating throughout the weekend. Though one might immediately think of pounding the green beer with a Jameson chaser, there are other options to consider when choosing your St. Paddy's day libation.

We found four fantastic cocktails that embody the spirit of this rousing holiday where for one day, everyone's blood runs green. Make these cocktails at home with the included recipes, or enjoy them at the bars listed. Just remember to wear something green.
