Holy yum! I almost drank the whole Shamrock-arita cocktail before I got to take a photo. I had to control myself! I'm a big fan of drinks that have melon liqueur and make that into margarita form equals bonus! Since St. Patrick's day is right around the corner and everyone is Irish on March 17th, feel free to make a few Shamrock-aritas....or a bucket full!
1 oz. Sauza Blue Gold Tequila
1/2 oz. Melon liqueur
2 oz. Lime juice
1 oz. Simple syrup
Combine ingredients into ice-filled cocktail shaker, shake and strain into an ice-filled margarita glass. Optional: garnish with a lime wedge.
A little about the St Patrick's Day
St. Patrick's Day became an official public holiday in Ireland in 1903. It wasn't long after that America appropriated the holiday and made everyone Irish for a day.
