St. Patrick’s Day Melon Flavored Martini – Melontini

St. Patrick’s Day is a nightmare for non-beer drinkers. I mean, maybe it’s not a nightmare, more of an inconvenience. You go out on St. Paddy’s Day and try ordering anything other than beer. The funny looks you’ll get!  Not to mention even more funny looks because you’re not wearing green. People around here take it personally.

I’m sorry, but I’m not Irish!

Do not kiss me, and do not even think about pinching me! However, this year I’m trying to fit in and I’m doing it with this green martini -Melontini.

As the name suggests, melontini is made with a splash of melon liqueur. Weirdly, I love everything melon-flavored but I don’t like melons. Just call me the St. Patrick’s Day Grinch, mmmkay?


The closest to anything Irish I am is that I live in midst of Fighting Irish city – Notre Dame University. Honestly, for almost twenty years living here, I have not once been to a single game. Tailgating is as far as I’ll go. I mean, I have nothing against the team or Irish, it’s just that I do not understand football and have no desire to learn the rules.

But, we can talk soccer all you want. And even more, we can talk about it over this super green St. Patrick’s Day martini. I’ll even cook something Irish for you.

How to make St. Patrick’s Day Martini – Melontini

By the way, are you a beer drinker? Do you mind when someone takes a sip of beer from your glass (or bottle)? To tell the truth I have this thing where I always take the first sip of my husband’s drink. He’s so trained by now, he comes to find me if I’m not near him when he pours himself a drink. He’s a keeper!

In any case, how do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? In short, what do you cook and most importantly, what do you drink? Just remember, if you’re going out – drink responsibly! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Cheers!

    Jas, I’ve never been one for football either, and after watching that movie Concussion, I’m like yikes! Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂

    This green drink is so fun! I’m not into beer, so I’d much rather have a martini for St. Patrick’s Day.

      I agree with you, Wendy. Beer is boring even when it’s green, lol!

    🙂 I take kisses (from certain people lol) and leave the pinches out…but I’m not Irish either (Mostly Scottish (mom) with a little native american mixed in(dad)). This drink would suit me fine. It’s green, that’s all that matters to me for St. Patrick’s Day – although I do like beer too. 😉 GORGEOUS photo!

    The drink is gorgeous to be sure! I don’t drink often either, but don’t mind a taste if my husband is having something new. If I am going to have a drink though, something like this is where I’m going to gravitate any time!

    Okay, true story, I will watch football because I like the look of men in football pants. Did I say pants? I meant GEAR, of course. I like to look at their rear gear, specifically. I know *just* enough to talk smack all day long against my brother-in-laws’ teams (in hockey too), even if I have to listen to a sports report for facts to insult him with, facts which I freely admit that I then promptly forget once the burn has been laid.
    Soccer shorts are way too flappy to bother watching at all, in my mind. Plus, BIL doesn’t follow much soccer. Maybe he should, because I can be versatile; I also dis golf pros when he & Mr Shoes are watching golf on tv after having playing 36 holes.
    I should probably drink more than I do…… the melontini looks marvellous!
    When we were newlyweds & Mr Shoes took sandwiches to work, I used to take a bite off one corner & call it a lovebite. I really just wanted to taste his sandwich.

      Lol, love bite! That’s too cute. Football gear is too padded for my taste, I prefer flappy soccer shorts as they show more leg 😉 And you can see their faces. To each their own, I guess. Have a great weekend!
