A Lucky Charms Green Martini is the perfect cocktail for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration! Bring back some childhood memories using a favorite cereal to create the gorgeous green color of this drink as well as a fun garnish on the side.

This drink is definitely what I would call a “dessert cocktail”. It’s very sweet because of the addition of pulverized marshmallows and whipped cream. If you want a less-sweet version, you can always sub heavy cream for the whipped cream.

One last thing, you do have to separate the marshmallows from the cereal, specifically the green ones. But, it doesn’t take very long and you can always sample a few while doing this. I may or may not know from experience 😉.

Ingredients Needed for a Lucky Charms Green Martini

  • Vanilla Vodka
  • Irish Cream (I used Bailey’s)
  • whipped cream or heavy cream
  • pulverized green marshmallows from Lucky Charms cereal
  • extra green powder and marshmallows for garnish

How to Make This Cocktail

Add fresh ice to a cocktail shaker along with all of the ingredients. Shake well until nice and cold. Shake a little more to be sure everything is combined and then strain the drink through a fine-mesh strainer into a cocktail glass. Sprinkle the top with additional green marshmallow powder and garnish with a marshmallow from the cereal.

How to Pulverize the Marshmallows and Make Your Cocktail Green

I just like using the word pulverize for some reason but that really is what you need to do. To turn those cute little green marshmallows into a powder, you can use a coffee/nut grinder, a small food processor, or just smash them with something heavy. I use my mini coffee grinder for everything including this cocktail.

If you choose to do this by hand, place the marshmallows in a plastic bag and crush them with something heavy like a rolling pin. You may also want to wrap the bag in a towel or paper towel to keep the bag from breaking while smashing. TIP: this only works with freeze-dried marshmallows like the ones in cereal, not regular squishy marshmallows.
