St. Patrick's Day is almost here! To get in the spirit, we're sharing some of our favorite green drink recipes. In this Irish Mojito, the Creme de Menthe is the secret ingredient — we used white, but use green if you want the drink to have more color.

Squeeze half a lime into a cocktail shaker, add mint leaves and muddle. Add Bacardi, sugar and a handful of ice and shake. Strain mixture into martini glass. Top off with a splash of club soda and a drizzle of Creme de Menthe, which will sink to the bottom. Add a lime wedge for garnish, and serve.
