Spiked Shamrock Shakes

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Are you wearing green today? Every year I remember getting pinched by my best friend, Sydney, because every year I consistently forget to wear green. This year, I have a brand new green t-shirt that I was ready to throw on, thinking Syd would be so proud. Then I realized, Beauty and the Beast comes out today so I MUST wear yellow instead. And yellow and green definitely don’t go together in the wardrobe department. So, cheers, to another year of me getting pinched.

I am so excited to be sharing this recipe with you guys today. I’ve been working with Vita Coco for the last few years and it’s been such a dream come true. I’ve loved making recipes for them and helping develop their content on social media. So, when their new coconut milk was released and they were looking for a St. Patrick’s Day inspired {boozy} recipe, I couldn’t wait! This shake/float concoction is seriously delish. I practically inhaled it while taking the photos. The simple syrup makes it extra sweet, while the peppermint schnapps adds a little kick. This is definitely the perfect sweet drink to add a some fun to your holiday! I hope you love it as much as I do! Xx
