Pick the Best St. Patrick's Day Accessories
Shamrock overload! It's basically the only thing you need to know about accessorizing for St. Pat's. Shamrock sunglasses or head boppers can top off your green duds perfectly, or you can use them to spice up your otherwise normal attire. Speaking of topping off, you can get a classic green top hat or a polyfoam one to cover your dome. Wear some hilarious beer goggles to let everyone know you've got beer vision or a pair of funny Leprechaun sun-staches for a comedian's touch.
Pick the Best St. Patrick's Day Drinking Accessories
Since St. Patrick's Day is a drinking holiday after all, you're going to want to make sure you have plenty of drinking accessories. We have a wide selection of pint and shot glasses with your favorite characters and licensed properties. But, as for standing out with your choices? Oh, we've got some of those, too! Try the beer belt to hold a six pack around your waist, or stash them in our inflatable beer mug cooler. If you usually carry a purse, stashing your essentials in the Beer Mug Purse is an easy way to let you stand out. Or you could just fill our half pint glass with green beer for a funny practical joke at the bar!
Create Delicious St. Patrick's Day Cocktails
So, a forecast of green beer and Irish whiskies is the usual formula for St. Patrick's Day shenanigans, but if you'd like to stand out with your drink choices, try some of our favorites for an upgraded cocktail—they're sure to be a step up from green beer. Even if these drinks are somewhat sophisticated, don't worry, you can still be a hooligan if you want to! (Drink responsibly, though!)
Guinness Ginger Ale
Just mix two ounces each of ginger and vanilla liqueur with 12 ounces of club soda and slowly top off with a bottle of classic Guinness Draught for this tasty drink. It will make a beertini worthy of St. Patrick himself!
Irish Trash Can
This drink is sort of like a Long Island Iced Tea, but since it has an energy drink as the base, we have no problem with calling it an Irish Trash Can! It's the perfect pick-up drink in between green beers. Just combine ½ ounce parts of gin, light rum, vodka, peach schnapps, blue curacao, and triple sec before you top it off with the full can of Red Bull.
Irish whiskey with ginger ale, peach schnapps, and a splash of OJ? Yes, please! This delightful sipper is perfect for the St. Patty's Day celebration. You can make this drink with two parts whiskey, two parts ginger ale, ½ part peach schnapps, and a splash of orange juice.
Irish Car Bomb
Of course, no March 17th would be complete without an Irish Car Bomb, so make sure you have the tried and true classic down pat. A ½ shot of Bailey’s and a ½ shot of Jameson, dropped into ¾ pint of Guinness Stout... slam it down, and the festivities will officially be under way!
