A new month means new holidays, and our favorite holidays here at Guilty Eats are foodie holidays! And though St. Patrick’s Day isn’t exactly a foodie holiday, it’s all about green food and drinks! This is one of my favorite days of the year.

Green clothing, Irish food galore, and of course what would a St. Patrick’s Day be without a mixed drink or two? If you’re bored of the typical Irish stouts and green beer, these drink recipes are here to save the day!
