The Green Patrick

by James Stevenson

The Green Patrick is a cocktail that was originally made to drink on St. Patricks Day but I decided it can be drunk any time of year. I am so excited to share this green and delicious take on a Bloody Mary.

Seriously, this green Bloody Mary has a lot of vitamins in it and will make you feel fully recovered after a big night out. It’s basically green juice minus the kale and the addition of vodka! It has roasted tomatillos which are so good in combination with the cucumber and parsley. So, share with friends and drink this tangy boozy Green Partick.
