You will find that the Emerald Isle is a minty gin cocktail that is a great green drink for St. Patrick's Day parties and is similar to the Caruso (which I personally prefer).

A dash or two of bitters does help the drink considerably and, while aromatic bitters are customary, I've found that mint bitters are an equally nice compliment. If you're feeling a little wild, orange bitters are quite interesting also.
