Irish eyes will definitely be smiling with a few sips of a fuzzy leprechaun or an Irish margarita. 

But you don’t have to wait for St Patrick’s Day to get boozing.

Make your Halloween extra special this year with a tall glass of toxic spawn martini or a pitcher of wicked witch.

There are even a few options for Christmas on this list of green cocktails

So let’s dive in.

1. Green Demon Drink

This refreshing cocktail is like summer in a glass.

Made with Midori, vodka, rum, and lemon, it’s a gloriously boozy lemonade that’s perfect for warm afternoons and lazy days in the sun.

It’s easy to adjust to taste, too. If you want something stronger, cut back on the lemonade. For something a little lighter, mix it with more soda. 

You can easily make a big batch, so no one needs to go thirsty if you’re planning this for your next game day.

2. Wicked Witch Cocktail

Sometimes it’s good to be bad, and this tempting cocktail is definitely sinful.

Great for grown-up Halloween parties, it’s a spooky sip made with Midori, vodka, and blue Curacao.

The alcohol is topped off with a mix of fruit juices, giving it a tart and zesty flavor.

Decorate with cherries and silver shimmer for an extra dose of ghoulish fun.

3. Luck of the Irish

Irish or not, you’ll definitely feel lucky after a glass of this boozy treat.

Made with Jameson whiskey, it’s a true taste of the Emerald Isle, tempered with peach schnapps, pineapple juice, and lime soda.

4. Blue Hawaii Cocktail

Right up there with the classic cocktails, the Blue Hawaii was created in the 1950s by a Hawaiian bartender.

It remains popular to this day thanks to its sweet and fruity taste and gorgeous turquoise color. 

Some places make it really blue. But it’s usually a nice mix of sea green when I order it. So I think it deserves a spot on the list!

5. The Grinch Cocktail

Go from Grinch to great with this fun and festive tipple.

You can whisk this holiday treat up in minutes. Simply stir together Midori, rum, and lemon-lime soda.

Decorate with a cherry and that’s it. You’ll be left with a frosty glass of something red, green, and irresistibly delicious.

6. Fuzzy Leprechaun

This bright green drink tastes like peach and goes down very easily.

Funky and fruity, it’s flavored with peach schnapps, blue Curacao, vodka, pineapple juice, and orange.

It may not be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but it’s still a leprechaun’s favorite tipple!

7. Toxic Spawn Martini

Okay, so the name’s not exactly appetizing, but this Halloween treat is a lot tastier than it sounds.

The ‘spawn’ is chia seeds, soaked in Kinky Green liqueur and vodka. Make no mistake, this is a strong drink, so handle it with care… just as you would toxic waste.

8. Kinky Green Cocktail

Another Kinky Green liqueur cocktail, this recipe is deliciously different.

It’s tart and tangy, with a sour apple taste that’ll wake up your tastebuds.

The mixers here are lemonade and lime soda, but you can always switch it up with plain soda if you fancy something lighter. 

This zesty refresher is perfect for beating the summer heat, or just celebrating Friday night happy hour!

9. Green Screwdriver

Screwdrivers are a classic-yet-simple cocktail made by combining orange juice and vodka. 

There’s a lot of debate over the origins of this popular highball. Some say it was created by thirsty marines during World War II.

Others claim it was invented by an oil rig crew in the 1940s and takes its name from the only thing they could stir it with – a screwdriver.

Whichever theory you subscribe to, the drink is a classic for a reason.

This version adds blue Curacao to turn it turquoise but otherwise sticks to the time-honored formula. Some things don’t need any improvement.

10. Hammered Hulk

A few of these and Hulk would go from homicidal to happy in no time flat.

If you’re feeling Hulk-like, this cocktail is the perfect pick-me-up. It’s a sweet and fruity mix of coconut rum, Midori, and blue Curacao, finished with fresh lime and lemon.

11. Green Flash Cocktail

I don’t know what I love most about this one – the cute glasses or the drink itself.

Of course, the drink is easier to recreate at home.

And between the tequila, Cointreau, and agave, it’s a very familiar mix.

But what makes it so fun (and green!) is the cucumber and jalapeño juice. Add as much or little as you like to make this cool yet spicy bevvy.

12. Lime Martini

Sweet, sour, and very tempting, this sophisticated martini is for cocktail fans and wannabe bartenders.

It’s a crazy delicious combo of vanilla vodka, citrus vodka, and lime syrup.

Yes, that’s two types of vodka in one drink. Keep this one for special occasions and you’ll be the life of the party!

13. Whiskey Smash

Made with Irish whiskey, this St Patrick’s Day favorite is the kind of cocktail that leaves you wanting more.

It’s made with just four ingredients – whiskey, mint, lime, and simple syrup – so you’ll have no excuse not to shake it up and give it a try.

‘Smashed’ together, the fresh mint leaves and lime slices release all their amazing aroma and taste, producing a flavorful cocktail that’s lip-smacking good.

Serve it over ice, and add a few extra mint leaves to garnish.

14. Green Prosecco Cocktail

This light cocktail is perfect after a heavy meal or for those times when you want something to sip that won’t weigh you down.

Frothy and refreshing, it’s a bubbly blend of prosecco, melon liqueur, and fresh lemon juice.

Look for a dry prosecco that’s slightly tart rather than sweet. This will help balance the fruity flavor of the Midori liqueur and stop it from becoming sickly.

Elegant and eye-catching, this is a cocktail for sophisticated cocktail connoisseurs.

15. Green-Eyed Monster Martini

This is a fun cocktail if you’re planning a sophisticated, adults-only, Halloween bash.

Vibrantly green, and flavored with melon, lime, and pineapple, it’s not your usual martini. It’s much fruitier and much more monster-like. 

It’s especially festive if you add a few olives-as-eyeballs to stare up at you as you sip!

16. Irish Margarita

What makes this margarita Irish? A dash of Irish whiskey and some curacao for color.

South America meets Europe with Mexican tequila and Irish whiskey in the mix.

Add a smattering of fruit juices for a boost of tropical flavor, and you’ve got yourself a party.

This amazing cocktail is perfect for a southern-style St Patrick’s Day!

17. Island Time Cocktail

Kick off your shoes, dig your toes into a white sand beach, and soak up some sun. 

Or, alternatively, take a sip of this island-themed cocktail that’ll give you that vacation feeling from the comfort of your own couch.

It’s made with blue curacao and pineapple juice for a refreshing and fruity cocktail that’s perfect for summer (or wishing it was summer!).
