I love St. Patrick’s Day because..
-I LOVE the color green (bonus points for olive green!)
-I am 12.5% Irish
-I love potatoes

We grew up celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with green eggs and ham and green milk. I loved it when I was young, but now I’m not sure I would be as excited to drink green milk!

When I worked as a nanny I would make the kids green pancakes and that was always fun!


I know that McDonald’s shamrock shake will be very popular around St. Patrick’s day – but I’ve never had one! 😱 I’m not really a big fan of milkshakes, so this is the perfect green drink to make instead if you’re like me and won’t be running to get a shamrock shake.

There are so many ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day – with rainbow smoothies, shamrock marshmallows, or rainbow sugar cookies. And the best part is that you don’t have to be Irish to celebrate.

This is the perfect green float to share with family or friends because it requires very minimal effort since you can buy everything at the store!


The lime sherbet floats are delicious and refreshing. I’m usually not a big fan of pop because of the carbonation, but I really enjoyed this beverage because the flavors were awesome!

The recipe below is for one drink, but you can easily scale the recipe up if you’re making it for a crowd.

You could also make it in a punch bowl. I would suggest doing a little taste testing as you’re mixing the items together to determine if you need more of a certain flavor.

For a WOW presentation add a lime slice, sprig of mint, and a cute straw.
