What’s your go to St. Patrick’s Day drink? In my experience, this holiday is filled with Irish ale, car bombs and green beer. Great options, yes, but we were hoping for something a little more fun to hold.
Enter Sparkling Shamrock Champagne – bubbly, a tad sweet and pretty in green. The ideal cocktail for anyone feeling extra boujee on St. Patty’s. For my visual learners, check out my TikTok to see how it’s made!
Here’s what you need to make your Sparkling Shamrock Champagne
- Your favorite dry (Brut) champagne, chilled
- 2 oz Midori Melon Liqueur
- Honeydew or Melon Balls (or if you happen to own a mini shamrock cookie cutter now is the time to use it!)
- Gold or Green Sugar (sugar mixed with green/gold food coloring)
Now here’s how to make it…
Take a melon ball (or lime) and run it around the rim of a champagne flute. Dip rim in sugar. Pour 2 oz of Midori in glass then top with champagne. Place a melon ball on a toothpick, cover in sugar and place on top of champagne flute. Drop melon ball in glass right before drinking for maximum bubble pleasure and a touch of extra sweetness and luck
