St. Patrick's Day is almost here, and that means downing lots of green beer — not! Beer and food coloring are not supposed to mix, so drop that.

There are so many great libations for toasting to Saint Patrick besides the Shamrock Shake and grass-hued Bud.

Here are eight drinks that will help you celebrate St. Paddy's Day properly.

If you're taking it easy on the alcohol but still feeling festive, head to Sugar Factory, where you can indulge in its Lucky Rainbow shake. Priced at $22, this St. Patrick Day's milkshake is all things green, from the cake pop crowning the top of the green vanilla shake to the giant M&M's climbing up the ganache-frosted glass.
