Chances are that you'll be spending the night at a local bar, but a night of imbibing requires proper sustenance first. Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with green goddess dressing, matcha gingerbread cookies and, of course, a homemade Shamrock shake in the color that everyone associates with this very Irish of holidays.

1. Avocado-cilantro frozen margarita

Add some Tex-Mex to your Irish holiday with a hefty pour of tequila. Even if you're a cilantro hater, give it a try — with the creamy avocado and agave simple syrup, there's no soap taste to be had.

2. Green chile and tomatillo corn bread

The tomatillos add a brightness in both color and flavor. Regular cornbread will never taste — or look — as good.

3. Green goddess dressing

Tis the season to make great use of all the beautiful herbs popping up. Warning: This stuff is addictive. Be prepared to use it on everything.

4. Green juice and pulp muffins

The two-in-one breakfast might be best for when you're nursing a hangover after one too many green beers. It's also another type of green, since you're recycling the remains of the juice for another, equally delicious purpose.

5. Matcha gingerbread cookies

This is the moment matcha's been waiting for: When all other foods and drinks are green and it doesn't have to feel so lonely. And now these Christmas cookies just became seasonal for spring.

6. Shamrock shake

The minty drive-thru classic gets a pistachio reboot for an all-natural green tint. It's even more fun when you give it a theme song to the tune of everyone's favorite internet fad.

7. Spring pea guacamole

Remember when everyone got irrationally angry about guacamole and peas? Yea, we're pretty glad that's over, too.

8. Sweet green pea and halal falafel

This is not your average, street cart falafel (although there's plenty of room for that too, today). While the latter might taste great in the moment, this one will also leave you feeling amazing after the fact.

9. Top Toddy

It's almost the end of the week, so we give you the green light to cozy up with this adult hot toddy and call it a night.

10. Tostadas with charred snap peas and avocado

Spring is the perfect time for crunching through fresh peas. Put them on top of a crisped corn tortilla and pair with equally green smashed avocado and fava beans.
