It's 4pm, which means the weekend is almost truly upon us, which also means that we’re two glorious days away from St Patrick’s Day. The time when everyone becomes a quarter Irish, dons a giant green hat and speaks in tones of dubious authenticity.

To get in the mood at FHM, we’re drinking a special Paddy’s Day concoction whipped up by Bacardi mixologist Shervene Shahbazkhani, the aptly named Patrick’s Punch. Get the recipe below, stick Wild Rover on the stereo and get you weekend started with a lovely Irish jig.

Cocktail: Patrick’s Punch

Simply build in the glass over ice.
