It’s St. Patrick’s Day! You all know what that means – that’s right, beer. And lots of it. But this year, why not spice things up a bit with some beer cocktails? Here are a few fun cocktails that you can mix up for friends (of just yourself) either before or after hitting the pub.

Lucky Lime

1.5 oz Russian Standard Vodka

3 pieces of Kumquat

0.5 oz Lime Juice

0.5 oz Simple Syrup

Top with Amstel Light Beer

The full body and rich wheat taste of Russian Standard Vodka is a perfect match for the addition of a popular brew. A hint of lime adds a clean, springy touch to this light mix, an encouraging taste for those of you ready for a lively holiday to end this harsh winter!

Burnt Oranges

1.5 oz Flor de Caña Rum

0.5 oz Blood Orange Puree

0.5 oz Lemon Juice

Top with Guinness Beer

The sweet undertones of this award-winning Nicaraguan rum mixed with Guinness result in the creation of your own pot of gold, as reflected by the burnt orange glow this delicious cocktail gives off.

The Spicy Irishman

1 oz Russian Standard Vodka

1.5 oz Lucid Absinthe

¼ oz Siracha Hot Sauce

Topped with Killian’s Irish Red Beer

The distinctive herbal character of Lucid absinthe is an ideal complement to a green-filled holiday like St. Patty’s Day. Lucid, the spirit responsible for reintroducing absinthe to the United States in 2007, is as unique and exciting a find as an authentic four-leaf clover!
