A Green Eggs & Glam cocktail at home beats the bar crawl

This recipe from interactive NYC drink space Liquor Lab is tinted green from pandan-infused cream, made creamy by an egg yolk and finished with bubbles for a choice way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Pandan, a tropical leaf commonly used in Southeast Asian cooking, is known for its nutty, floral flavor and is readily available online in extract form. The recipe makes a half cup of cream—of which you'll only need a couple tablespoons—but you can keep it in your refrigerator for the next time you're in the mood for a verdant cocktail.

It's a simple shaken cocktail, one the Lab's Freddie Sarkis says all you're left to do is "garnish with the luck of the Irish and a kiss of the Blarney Stone."

Pair your cocktail with classic corned beef and Guinness-braised cabbage.
