Expert Tips

More About This Recipe
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.
