Which liquor pairs best with the fast-food chain's popular seasonal shake?

Recently, our friends over at What’s Cookin’ conducted a minty shake taste test with the Shake Shack Jeremy Lin-Mint and more traditional McDonald’s Shamrock Shake. This got me nostalgic for those bright green, frosty treats which I haven’t indulged in since before the Clinton administration.

I wanted to know if the current shake still stood up to those happy memories. And since my mind often goes there anyway, it also had me wondering what it might taste like with different spirits mixed in. I decided to revisit my childhood memories, but with an adult spin by playing Home Bar Roulette.

I was a bit disappointed that the shake wasn’t as fresh-minty as I remembered, instead it had more of a sweet spearmint toothpaste flavor, with a lot of vanilla and surprising creaminess.

Staring at my home liquor shelf, I found what I thought would be a worthy selection: Zubrowka bisongrass vodka, Hayman’s Old Tom Gin, Banks white rum, Hum liqueur, green Chartreuse, and Clontarf Irish single malt whiskey. Were they lucky charms? Read on to find out!

Copycat McDonald's Shamrock Shake

The original Shamrock Shake is only available at McDonald's for a limited time (end of February through March) each year, but we'd drink it any day of the year. So we created our own.

What does it taste like?

Minty and very creamy. These are the ingredients McDonald's shares on its website: reduced-fat vanilla ice cream, whipped light cream, and "Shamrock Shake Syrup." 😒 Instead of the syrup, we use peppermint extract and green food color. Warning: A little bit of the extract goes a lonnngggg way.

Can you add alcohol?

Is that even a real question? YES! McDonald's doesn't offer a boozy version, for obvious reasons. But when you make this at home, you can add as much as you want. You could use plain or flavored vodka. Marshmallow vodka could be kinda genius.

Do I need ice cream?

As with all good milkshakes, yes, ice cream is key. You could go the way of the fast food chain and opt for a reduced-fat pint. But we went all out with regular vanilla ice cream PLUS a little bit of cream. It makes the milkshake extra-decadent and special. Milk can be substituted in a pinch.

Are there different flavors of Shamrock Shakes?

In the past, McDonald's has offered Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappés and Chocolate Shamrock Shakes. To make the latter, we'd make one batch of chocolate shakes and one batch of Shamrocks, then swirl the two together. The reason: Adding chocolate syrup to the blender with the green shake turns the whole thing an ugly shade of green-brown. (Though it'd still taste delish.)
