shamrock shakeWhen I say St. Patrick's Day, some people think beer. Me? I think shamrock shakes. You know, those minty green milkshakes made famous by a certain fast food restaurant? Well, if it's been a while since you've indulged, you're in for a treat. I think mint and ice cream make a scrumptious combination. These shakes are ridiculously simple to whip up at home. Just four ingredients to refreshing St. Patrick's Day perfection. Here's how to make them!
