St. Patrick’s Day is such a fun, and dare we say sassy, little holiday. From the green attire, to the sparkly gold accessories, green beer, and those mischievous little men running around town pinching people — St. Patrick’s Day provides the perfect excuse to throw in a little fun on the march to spring. In the essence of joining in on anything resembling a celebration we’ve crafted our very own cocktail, The Sassy Leprechaun.

The Sassy Leprechaun
Serves: 3 to 4
Prep Time: 5 mins
– 1 bottle of Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice sparkling water
– 6 oz. of tequila
– 1 oz. of triple sec
– 1 teaspoon of sugar
– 1 teaspoon of sprinkles (We used gold mixed with white, but would look just as fun with rainbow sprinkles.)
– 1 lime
1: Mix sugar and sprinkles onto a small plate.
2: Cut lime in half and set one half aside.
3: Use other half of lime and use juice to wet the rim of your glass. Dip wet glass rim into sprinkle mixture.
4: Mix kiwi strawberry water, tequila, and triple sec into a pitcher.
5: Take the remaining half of lime and squeeze juice into the pitcher. Stir lightly.
6: Serve over ice, and try to keep the pinching to a minimum.
