This is the perfect drink for your adult Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations! The Vanilla Vodka and Creme De Menthe gives this Shamrock Shake a delicious kick that really makes it so much better than the original favorite shake!

Of course, you can turn this into an incredible non-alcoholic shake by substituting the Creme de Menthe for Peppermint Extract and leaving the Vanilla Vodka out! It will taste fantastic with or without the alcohol! Garnish with whipped cream, sprinkles, and cherries for a Boozy Shamrock Shake that looks as beautiful as it tastes!

This Boozy Shamrock Shake comes together easily and is a great St. Patrick’s Day recipe! Within moments you can have a festive drink that is so delicious you just might make it year round and not just on Saint Patrick’s Day
