Our St. Patrick’s Day meal wouldn’t be complete without some fun drinks! Kid-friendly…of course! On the menu…

Shamrock Shake…Irish Cream Pie Shake…Virgin Irish Car Bomb

Shamrock Shake {copycat recipe}

The Shamrock Shake is a very familiar St. Patrick’s Day Drink under the “golden arches”. They are very easy to make, with just a few ingredients.

Irish Cream Pie Shake

A couple weeks ago I shared Irish Cream Pie Cupcakes, this shake was inspired by those. I used International Delight Irish Creme Coffee Creamer and it gave the shake not only a really good flavor it was also very creamy.

Irish Car Bomb {kid friendly}

An Irish Car Bomb is an adult drink that is made with Guinness Beer,  Bailey’s Irish Cream and Irish Whiskey. Although I have never had one {because I would probably pass out after just one} I hear they taste like a Rootbeer Float or a Frosty. So here is the non-alcoholic or Virgin recipe.
