As hints of spring emerge and winter begins to fade, it’s time to embrace change and offer a new and enticing menu. The changing of seasons brings a burst of inspiration, especially when revamping a cocktail list.

These essential cocktails for March offer a delightful experience that will get anyone celebrating the new season. Whether you’re celebrating the arrival of brighter days or looking for some St. Paddy’s Day inspiration, these five cocktails are sure to bring forth excitement.

Dutch Mule

Every year on March 3, we toast to an iconic cocktail that’s known for its refreshing taste. For National Moscow Mule Day, try this fruity and bright twist. Instead of vodka, the Dutch Mule opts for an earthy gin. Adding the fresh slices of ruby red grapefruit gives it the perfect amount of sweetness. It’s an easy cocktail to have on any spring menu.

Absinthe Frappe

There is nothing quite like a frozen cocktail on a day when you’re craving warmer weather. On National Absinthe Day (3/5), try this simple recipe with ingredients that any bar back will have. While it might seem to lack in flavor from the outside, each sip will have you coming back for more.

White Rabbit

Celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8 with a cocktail created by one of Chilled 100’s very own—Robin Wolf. The White Rabbit uses carrot juice and rum to create something refreshing with an earthy touch. It’s a great cocktail to take inspiration from, as Wolf uses local and in-season ingredients when making cocktails.

Irishman Abroad

During this time of year, people celebrate the Irish heritage through spirited libations. This St. Patrick’s Day (3/17), skip the green beer and add this Irish Whiskey cocktail to your menu. This festive drink mixes whiskey, tequila, and Cointreau for a zesty and tantalizing experience.

Spritz Tzu

Spring is here, so that calls for a celebration. On the spring equinox (3/19), offer this light and invigorating cocktail that anyone will love. The Spritz Tzu captures the flavors of the season with crisp chardonnay and floral elderflower liqueur. It’s topped with a simple twist but can be elevated with edible flowers to pull in that seasonal factor.
