The luck of the Irish is with everyone on St. Patrick’s Day. Irish roots or not, all Americans can enjoy the day and surprise their family or guests with St. Patrick’s Day decorations and treats to remember the origins of the day.

#1 Coffee that Packs a Punch

#2 Parade Treats

#3 Hearty and Festive Meal

Add coffee-themed drinks to the traditional Guinness and Jameson offerings. Extremely popular in Ireland, Irish coffee is traditionally made with hot coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar and topped with thick cream. Our version, Almond Irish Coffee adds a burst of nutty flavor. Sláinte!

Treat your friends and family to Shamrock Lemon Sugar Cookies with Lemon Glaze and Lemon Piping Icing. Our Pure Lemon Extract adds a tangy twist to this St. Patrick’s Day-themed treat. They’re fun to decorate with the kids and perfect to pack as a St. Patrick’s Day parade treat.

Guinness and Coffee Irish Beef Stew is a savory and comforting stew to get you in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit. The addition of Pure Coffee Extract brings out the bold flavors of the stout, making it a star for lunch or dinner.  


Grab some Irish whiskey or beer, blast festive tunes and don’t forget to wear green! Even if you don’t find a pot of gold on St. Patrick’s Day, with these ideas, you’ll be feeling the luck of the Irish in no time.
