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.

  1. Fill your glass about 3/4 of the way to the top
  2. Add 2 scoops of lime sherbet
  3. Add a splash of pina colada mix
  4. Use half a strip of rainbow candy for garnish
  5. Cut off the ends of a green piece of licorice and use it as your straw
