Applebee's has been in business since the 1980s, serving its customers a delectable menu and delicious drinks. Just a few years ago, the food establishment introduced the Tipsy Leprechaun cocktail; here's how to make your copycat version at home.

In February 2021, Applebee's introduced a short line of new drinks in honor of the then-upcoming holiday, Saint Patrick's Day. Dubbed the $5 Saintly Sips, the two new drinks were the Pot O' Gold Colada and the Tipsy Leprechaun.

These drinks were received well by longtime fans of the decades-old establishment, so much so that they made copycat versions of the delicious cocktails. While there were two, this article will focus on the Tipsy Leprechaun. So, without further ado, here's Applebee's Tipsy Leprechaun recipe.
