St. Patrick's Day Cocktail Ideas for a Corporate Event

February 23, 2023

St. Patrick's Day is one of the most celebrated holidays across the globe. Every year on March 17th, people gather to celebrate Irish culture, history, and traditions. If you’re planning a corporate event for St. Patrick's Day, you’ll want to keep your colleagues in high spirits with a variety of themed cocktails. POUR is here to provide our bar services for events and share our customized list of cocktail ideas for your St. Patrick’s Day corporate outing.

Irish Coffee

Even though this day is full of high energy, some people will want to stay mellow. It’ll never hurt to have our Raleigh bartender serve up classic Irish Coffees at your event. These simple cocktails include only a few ingredients, and they’re a great choice for those who like to celebrate relaxed and warm.


  • 1 cup of freshly brewed hot coffee
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 ounces of Irish whiskey
  • Splash of slightly whipped heavy cream

Green Beer

What's a St. Patrick's Day celebration without green beer? With our bar services for events, you can count on this staple making an appearance. We can make this novelty drink by just adding green food coloring to any light-colored beer.


  • 1 drop of green food coloring
  • 12 ounces of beer (we recommend any pale lager)

Shamrock Sour

Another festive option that uses green food coloring is the popular Shamrock Sour. This is a great choice for guests who enjoy a drink that packs a heavy punch with a sour twist. It’s made with Irish whiskey, lime juice, mint, and simple syrup to help cut out the tartness.


  • 4 tablespoons of lime juice
  • 1/4 cup of simple syrup
  • 4 ounces of Irish whiskey
  • 1 drop of green food coloring
  • 1/4 teaspoon of mint extract

Pot of Gold

The Pot of Gold is always a crowd favorite for its unique presentation and blend of flavors. It’s made by combining Irish whiskey, ginger honey syrup, Islay scotch, egg whites, and lemon juice.


  • 1 3/4 ounces of Irish whiskey
  • 1/4 ounce of Islay scotch
  • 3/4 ginger honey syrup
  • 3/4 ounce of lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 egg white
  • Garnish: edible gold flakes!
