What does the Shamrock Shake Taste Like?

The Shamrock Shake is creamy and minty. How minty depends on what mint is used. Plain mint is typically the preferred mint due to it’s milder mint taste. Peppermint tends to be much stronger.   

 

 

Can You Add Alcohol to the Shamrock Shake?

 

You can absolutely add alcohol to the shamrock shake! Use as much or as little as you like. Plain vodka would work nicely as would flavored vodka.
