St. Patrick’s Day is one of the holiest days on the drinking calendar, so it’s no surprise that this month’s Sara’s Signature Cocktail is paying homage to a day that is so important to holiday revelers and heavy drinkers alike.

If you’ve ever been to a bar on St. Patrick’s Day—or anywhere outside the confines of your home—you know the standard drink order is beer. And not just any beer—green beer, usually made that way with food coloring so you feel like you’re drinking in the green spirit of the day. Now I don’t know about all of you, but the sight of green beer (even though I know the flavor will be the same as non-green beer) just doesn’t sit right with me. So in the spirit of the holiday, I’ve decided to channel not only the aesthetics of St. Patrick’s Day, but the diversity of the people that come together to mark the joyous, sometimes raucous occasion.
