Our spiked shamrock shake only requires a handful of ingredients to make, the results are ultra-festive and it tastes fantastic!
We were inspired by the concept of a white Russian cocktail, then spruced it up with mint chocolate chip ice cream and a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Of course, we love our shakes on the thick side, so use milk at your discretion to achieve the desired consistency.
If you want to serve this drink to your pals with a little extra flair, add a drop of food coloring to the mixture just before blending. Serve the finished product with St. Patty’s Day sprinkles and a green straw!
