St. Patrick's Day - Green Cocktail Recipes

St. Patrick's Day is on Saturday. That means instead of the usual St. Patrick's Day bar-hopping, you can treat this like an honest-to-goodness holiday and invite people over for a party. And no St. Patrick's Day party would be complete without some gorgeous green cocktails.

So here are some fab green cocktail recipes for St. Patrick's Day.

May the luck of the Irish be with you.... or at least some aspirin and pizza for your hangover the next day.
