Cheers! St. Patrick’s Day Cocktails from Hilton Caribbean & Latin America
When March 17 rolls around, everyone may be justified for feeling a little Irish—that’s because St. Patrick’s Day, with its parades, parties and green libations, is a welcome usher to spring and warmer weather. This St. Paddy’s Day, Hilton’s sunny hotels and resorts in the Caribbean and Latin America are serving travelers green cocktails for the inspiration to dig out of the snow and celebrate.
Bartenders at two top hotels in the Caribbean — the Caribe Hilton in Puerto Rico, Hilton São Paulo Morumbi in Brazil and Hilton Santo Domingo and Embassy Suites by Hilton in the Dominican Republic — have been good enough to share their favorite St. Patrick’s Day cocktail recipes. Cheers!
