    St. Patty's Drink Ideas

    At Isle Casino® Racing Pompano Park, we celebrate with our guests all year round! However, on March 17th, we also celebrate the luck o' the Irish…and you should too! Test out these fun drink ideas to make your St. Patrick's Day extra festive this year.

    Honeydew Martini
    Simple to create (and even easier to enjoy), the Honeydew Martini is a gorgeous emerald shade that seamlessly blends citrus and melon flavors. Best of all, it pairs well with savory dishes, making it an excellent choice for boiled dinners and other Irish-themed faire.

    3 oz. vodka
    1/2 oz. Midori
    1/2 oz. triple sec

    Pour all ingredients into a shaker half filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with citrus slices for added zest when sipping.

    Irish Flag
    No need for an all-green drink to show your St. Patty’s Day spirit! You can opt to travel a subtle, yet distinctly more patriotic route with this layered concoction. The green, orange and white of this cocktail showcase all of the colors of the Irish flag, held neatly in a shot glass.

    1/3 shot green crème de menthe
    1/3 shot Licor 43
    1/3 shot Irish cream

    Layer each ingredient into a shot glass. Leave unmixed for three distinctive, individually flavors, or stir together for a unique, vanilla-caramel flavored delight.

    The Grasshopper
    Forget about new age drinks with impossible-to-find ingredients. Kick off St. Patty's Day old school with this chocolate, minty classic.

    3/4 oz. green crème de menthe
    3/4 oz. white crème de cacao
    3/4 oz. light cream

    Place all ingredients into an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake until well chilled, straining the final mixture over your cocktail glass of choice (although a martini glass makes an excellent option). Garnish with a mint leaf, or if you're feeling especially indulgent, crumble a chocolate mint cookie on top.

    Chocolate Leprechaun
    If you're looking for something light, yet slightly decadent, this is the St. Patty's Day beverage for you. Perfect as an after-dinner drink, the Chocolate Leprechaun isn't green, but will definitely help put you in the spirit of the holiday.

    1 oz. Irish cream
    7 oz. milk
    2 tbsp. chocolate syrup

    Mix all ingredients together, shake and serve. Enjoy alone or with other sweet treats for a perfect dessert combination.
