Final-Cocktail-White-Background

You guys, it’s almost time to kiss an Irish person, wear green, drink green beer from a boot or just get lucky ;) With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, we want to help you prepare to go full on this March 17. If you’re hosting a party and want to provide an elixir other than an emerald-tinted Coors, look no further. We’re making tequila cocktails with a kick + glittery stir sticks that add a little flair.

Stir Sticks

Final-with-stick-on-napkin

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day and our love for gold glitter, we’re making gold shamrock stir sticks.

Cutting-Shamrock

First, draw a shamrock on the back of your sticky-back glitter foam sheet. Cut it out and then trace it onto another section of the foam sheet. Cut your second shamrock.

Making-Stir-Stick

Peel off the backs and then stick them to your stir stick, making sure to line them up.

Final-Stir-Stick

How easy was that?!

Spicy Leprechaun (aka Leprechaun Tears) (yes, we made that up.)

Final-Drink-Stir-Stick-Close-Up

We’re putting jalapeño and cucumber-infused tequila in this zingy cocktail. It’s the perfect combo of sweet, sour and spicy.

Infusing-Tequila-part-1

Cut one jalapeño and six or seven slices of cucumber, and add them to your Mason jar.

Infusing-Tequila-part-2

Pour one cup of tequila in the jar and secure the lid. Let the mixture infuse overnight so it gets nice and spicy (yet strangely spa-like!) from the cucumber.

Cutting-Lime-and-Mint

Now for the cocktail. Cut your lime in half and chop up a few mint leaves.

Making-Cocktail

Fill a cup with ice and add one shot of your newly infused tequila. Add a few leaves of mint and squeeze half of the lime into your cocktail. We also cut a slice of lime to garnish the edge of our glass. Keepin’ it classy :) Fill the rest of the cup with ginger beer. Give it a swirl with your swizzle stick and then take a gulp.

Perfection!
