Celebrating St. Patrick's Day With Cocktails

St. Patrick’s Day is on a Saturday this year so I’m guessing whole lot more people will be out celebrating. Just remember a more traditional St Patrick’s day is not about green beer and shamrocks, it’s about getting together with friends and family and celebrating those relationships. Here are some ways to impress your friends with these delicious drinks and Irish toasts to go along with them!
Sparkling Shamrock

2oz Elk Rider Vodka
2oz Sprite
1oz Apple juice
1/2oz Lime juice
Garnish with green apple slice

Pour all ingredients over ice. Stir twice and garnish with green apple slices.

“May you work like you don’t need the money, love like you’ve never been hurt, dance as if no one is watching, sing as if no one is listening, and live each day as if it was your last.”

Irish Whiskey Smash

2oz Elk Rider Blended Whiskey
4-5 Mint leaves, plus additional for garnish
½ lime cut into wedges
1/2oz Simple syrup

Place mint leaves, simple syrup and lime wedges in bottom of shaker and muddle gently 3-4 times (enough to release the juices and oils). Add Elk Rider Blended Whiskey and small handful of crushed ice. Cover and shake for 30 seconds. Pour into glass and top with more crushed ice. Garnish with Mint sprig.

“May your home always be too small to hold all of your friends!”

Celtic Breeze

2oz Elk Rider Vodka
2oz Lime juice
1oz simple syrup
Splash of club soda
3-4 Basil leaves

Add Elk Rider Vodka, lime juice, simple syrup and 2 basil leaves over ice and into to shaker. Shake for 30 seconds and strain over ice, into glass. Add splash of club soda and garnish with basil leaves.
