When we at Rejigger HQ were kids, St. Patrick’s Day was all about one sweet treat: the McDonalds Shamrock Shake. Even today, its minty taste and bright-green color bring back sweet fast-food memories. This year, we decided to give the childhood favorite a grown-up update—by mixing it with a Rejigger full of booze. Besides the obligatory shot of Jameson, there’s also Bailey’s Irish Cream and crème de menthe to enhance the drink’s creamy, minty taste. Slainté!
(If you’re unable to procure a Shamrock Shake, then a vanilla milkshake should work just as well. The crème de menthe will still turn the drink a pale, St. Patrick’s-y green.)
- Creme de menthe
- Jameson Irish Whiskey
- Bailey's Irish Cream
- 1 McDonald's Shamrock Shake
Skim the whipped cream and maraschino cherry off the top of the Shamrock Shake. Then pour the Shake and the contents of the Rejigger into a pint glass and stir with a spoon. Pour into two coupes or a single highball glass and enjoy!
