Move over stout beer, there's a new drink in town for St. Patrick's Day!
It’s a shamrock float... only better!!
My original thought for these drinks was just a simple lime sherbet shamrock float. I thought they would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.
Then I decided that a margarita float just sounded too good not to make. Now, I know that traditionally margaritas are Mexican, but seeing as this one here is full-on green, I'm thinking it's a good bet for St. Patrick’s Day.
So if stout beer is making you sigh, or you want a fun and pretty option for your St. Patrick’s Day party, here's your ticket!
Grab your ingredients.
If desired, salt the rims of each glass.
In a glass measuring cup, combine the tequila, lime juice and triple sec (or Cointreau™).
Fill each glass with a few scoops of sherbet.
Pour the tequila mixture over the sherbet, dividing the tequila evenly among all four glasses.
Top off each glass with seltzer or lemon-lime soda.
Garnish with fresh limes and mint.
And there you have it. Cool, refreshing and decidedly perfect.
