If you need a delicious drink for St Patrick's Day or Christmas, then I have the perfect recipe for you!!

The Sparkling Leprechaun Kiss

or....

The Sparkling Grinch Cocktail!

This drink is slightly sour, which I love and is so easy to make! 

It's festive, fun and delicious! 

I also love sparkling drinks, so the addition of the lemon lime soda tops it all off perfectly. 

I'm not one to usually celebrate St Patty's Day, but with a drink like this, it makes a great excuse to have a party or a couple drinks! 

If you're serving this as the Sparkling Grinch Cocktail for Christmas time, garnish it with red sugar sprinkles, if you're making it for St Patrick's day, garnish the glass with green sugar sprinkles. 

The slight sourness in this drink, goes so well with the whole Grinch attitude! Great for any adult Christmas gathering!

What are the ingredients in this recipe?

  • green or red sugar, for rimming glasses
  • Sour Apple Pucker
  • vodka
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • simple syrup- learn how to make it here
  • green food coloring
  • lemon lime soda
  • ice


Recipe tips:

  • Skip the food coloring if you'd prefer not to use it. The drink won't look the same, but will still taste great
  • Make sure to use freshly squeezed juice for the best flavor
  • Simple syrup is equal parts sugar and water heated until sugar dissolves completely. Refrigerate in a sterile container for up to one month
  • Cocktails with citrus should always be made using a shaker and not stirred. Shaking adds air bubbles that will give the drink a smooth, frothy texture

    1. I would try 8 ounces apple pucker, 4 ounces vodka, 8 ounces lemon juice, 4 ounces simple syrup, 8 drops green food coloring and one 2 liter of lemon lime soda. I have not made it in this quantity, but it's multiplying the recipe by 8. You may have to adjust or double again for more. Hope this works!
