…from the Perspectives’ St. Patrick’s Day Happy Hour Bar
How you doin’? Yes, it’s Saint Paddy’s Day! What are you drinking tonight? Here’s one for our Irish friends who may live in Mexico. It’s The Irish Cactus cocktail bringing together an unlikely duo creating a simple, creamy cocktail.
It’s a surprising cocktail owing to the hints of the tequila that come through the creamy liqueur when you least expect it. It’s a little on the sweet side, but with a little tequila kick.
Not only is this a great St. Patrick’s Day drink, it’s perfect for any Happy Hour, and for a dessert drink, too. And it's so simple to make that it will become one of your at home happy hour favorites, too.
Prep time: 3 minutes
Yield: 1 cocktail
1 ounce white tequila
2 ounces Irish cream liqueur
A few drops of green food coloring (don’t go overboard, just enough to let people know it’s for the holiday)
ChefSecret: You don’t need to use an expensive aged tequila, white tequila is a great choice for this cocktail. For the Irish cream I used Baileys which is the best-known Irish cream, but there are other brands available as well. I used one of those large ice cubes to reduce dilution—nobody wants to drink a watered-down creamy drink.
St. Paddy’s Quip of the Day: May the Irish hills caress you. May her lakes and rivers bless you. May the luck of the Irish enfold you. May the blessings of St. Patrick behold you.
