DIY Happy Hour: Shamrock Smash

Kel and I wanted to make drinks for St. Patrick's Day this year, but we had two requirements: 
1) No whiskey- neither of us are fans.
2) No Bailey's- cream-based liquors = no good for marathon drinking days/nights.

You'd be surprised how much that cuts down your options for St. Paddy's cocktails...

So we decided to think outside the box a bit and focus on the color green instead.


These Shamrock Smashes are tasty, refreshing, and best of all, bright green.

Recipe: 
1.5 oz Vodka
.5 oz Triple Sec
1/2 Peeled Kiwi
3 Green Grapes
Champagne

Muddle kiwi and grapes in shaker. Add vodka, triple sec and ice. Shake. Strain over ice. Top with champagne and garish with kiwi and grapes.

I was going to say, "I'm totally making these this weekend!" Then I realized I don't even know what "muddle" means and, wait, you'll be here in a week to make them for me! So excited.
