Green St. Patrick’s Day Drink
A couple years ago I was helping out in my son’s classroom for their St. Patrick’s Day party. I volunteered to bring drinks and decided to do something a little more fun and festive that just bringing in bottles of soda or juice boxes. I decided to take some inspiration from my popular Cupid Floats and make something just as fun but green!
That year I made these delicious green drinks by simply combining green sherbet with some lemon lime soda. However, this year I decided to spruce them up a bit and make them even better! This time I added a splash of pina colada mix that really makes this drink incredible!
How To Make A Festive St. Patrick’s Day Drink
This recipe is really about adjusting the ingredients to the size of the cup you’re making. When I made these for the class party, I had to reduce the amount of each ingredient because the cups were so small. Obviously, this isn’t rocket science, so I’m sure you’ll nail it.
- Fill your glass about 3/4 of the way to the top
- Add 2 scoops of lime sherbet
- Add a splash of pina colada mix
- Use half a strip of rainbow candy for garnish
- Cut off the ends of a green piece of licorice and use it as your straw
