Catch the luck of the Irish with green cocktails this St. Patrick’s Day

McGuinness Liqueurs offers four easy-to-make St. Patrick’s Day-themed cocktails

Every year on March 17th Canadians from coast to coast don their brightest green shirt and shamrock accessories to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. While green beer has traditionally played a leading role in these celebrations, McGuinness Liqueurs is inviting Canadians to up the ante at their green-themed party’s this year with green cocktails that promise to impress even the most conventional of Irishmen.

“With more people interested in preparing cocktails at home, it’s important to provide new options that help bring out the Irish in all of us,” says Julio Ochoa, McGuinness Brand Manager for Corby Spirit and Wine Limited. “With a large and  versitile range of essential flavours, McGuinness is the perfect cocktail mixer and 100% made in Canada.”

In that spirit, mixologists at Corby Spirit and Wine have come up with cocktail recipes for one of the most celebrated days of the year. Please enjoy these cocktails and their products responsibly.
