One of those holidays that is a ton of fun for everyone is Saint Patrick’s Day. It’s as if we all get to be Irish for at least one day a year with all the green, kisses, and pinches!

The ideal treat this year for adults looking for something festive is a boozy take on the classic shamrock shake.

For your adult Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations, this beverage is ideal! This Shamrock Shake has a great kick from the Vanilla Vodka and Creme De Menthe that really elevates it above your standard favorite shake.

Of course, you can make this a fantastic non-alcoholic smoothie by omitting the Vanilla Vodka and replacing the Creme de Menthe with Peppermint Extract.

Whether there is alcohol in it or not, it will taste delicious! For a Boozy Shamrock Shake that looks as stunning as it tastes, garnish with whipped cream, sprinkles, and cherries.
