Drunk Shamrock Shake

You are exactly right if you’re wondering if this sugary-sweet, whiskey infused beverage is inspired by the annual McDonald’s classic – it is! Except with a lot more whiskey and a little less mint, but that doesn’t mean it’s any better or worse, just a different take on an old, delicious classic.

Because nothing beats this St. Paddy’s Day classic, except maybe turning it into a jello shot.
