Milagro Tequila cocktails for St. Patrick’s Day

There is no rule that your drink of choice for St. Patrick’s Day has to be from Ireland. The only real rule that is enforced is that you have to wear something green. The punishment for not wearing green? A pinch! Those pinches can add up after a long night out. The later the night gets the more often and harder the pinches seem to get.

 

There is a strict rule for being granted sainthood though. To be granted sainthood you have to perform a miracle and it has to be confirmed by someone. According to the website About Religion St. Patrick was credited with many miracles. He converted thousands of Pagan Irish to the Catholic Religion, got food for the hungry and even raised the dead.

 

Milagro is Spanish for miracle. Milagro Tequila has created to green cocktails to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I’m sure St. Patrick would approve and probably enjoy one after a hard day of making miracles.
