From Green Tomato Cocktails to Spicy Citrus Ciders

These artisan St. Patty's Day drink recipes range from absinthe-infused cocktails to non-traditional Bloody Mary mixes that are made with green tomatoes. While green beer is the only St. Patty's Day drink that many of us will need this holiday, jump outside of the box with a cocktail recipe that is more refined and unexpected.

Fans of bourbon can try a rich and citrus-infused Boo Radley cocktail that pays tribute to Harper Lee's famous character from To Kill a Mockingbird. Those with an appreciation for gin can give an elderflower-infused Diving Bell drink recipe a try. The refreshing cocktail is garnished with orange peels for added flavor.

If a non-traditional lemonade is your drink of choice, try fruity, piquant and ginger-flavored varieties and make this St. Patty's Day celebration one to remember.
