If you’re trying to find a place that shares your enthusiasm for all things Irish, don’t panic. We’ve put together a list of a few St.Patrick’s Day cocktails here and there in the Phoenix area that will make you feel very lucky indeed. Read on to get your green on!

Irish Mule & the Shamrockarita

Taco Guild, 546 E Osborn Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85012

When you say them both together, it sounds like the name of a rock band. But really, Irish Mule and Shamrockarita are just two names of St. Paddy’s cocktails that Taco Guild came up with to celebrate the occasion. They also happen to heavily feature Jameson Irish Whiskey in both beverages, with the Irish Mule being a strawberry spin on the traditional Mule recipe, and the Shamrockarita featuring elderflower, honey, lemon, and cucumber to complete the drink.

Jameson Green Tea & the Nutty Irishman

32 Shea, 10626 N 32nd St, Phoenix, AZ 85028

For 32 Shea, any opportunity to show off their prowess with beverages makes for a great time. The same is true for St. Patrick’s Day, when they will be entertaining guests with live music and crafted cocktails like the Nutty Irishman. There’s also the Jameson Green Tea, and no matter what your taste, you’ll find something to sip on from 4 p.m. to close. If you are there when the performance starts, you’ll even get to have drinks and a show!

Kelly’s Mule & the Irish Tom Tom

Kelly’s at SouthBridge, 7117 E 6th Ave, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

Where does the best St. Paddy’s Day stuff happen? At a gastropub, of course! Kelly’s is your spot to celebrate if you’re looking for Irish spins on classic beverages, including Kelly’s Mule and the Irish Tom Tom, a fruity and delicious cocktail that features everyone’s favorite Irish whiskey, Jameson. The Old Aztec Coffee is another spin — if you’re familiar with the concept of “Irish coffee,” this might interest you a lot! Either way, it’s a good spot for another reason: They’ll be bringing corned beef sliders your way if you’re looking for food!

Green Tea Shots & Green Beer

Trapp Haus BBQ, 511 E Roosevelt St, Phoenix, AZ 85004

You’re probably going to want to fill your belly as you drink up. That’s why going to Trapp Haus BBQ is an awesome idea for anyone trying to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day. In addition to this barbecue house doing their own spin on corned beef and cabbage, they also want to booze you up with shots that look green enough to pass for the holiday. Green tea shots will help you let your hair down, but if you still need more party fuel, you can enjoy the original St. Paddy’s Day beverage: green beer!
