Day 4 St. Patty’s Fun – Not Irish – Blarney Ball – Shamrock shake

St. Patty’s Day Fun – Day 4 with treats, trivia and games

Did you know….

St. Patrick wasn’t Irish, and he wasn’t born in Ireland. Patrick’s parents were Roman citizens living in modern-day England, or more precisely in Scotland or Wales (scholars cannot agree on which). He was born in 385 AD. By that time, most Romans were Christians and the Christian religion was spreading rapidly across Europe.

Drinking Games – Blarney Ball

Bring a green softball to your favorite drinking spot. Keep drinking until you have the courage to throw the ball at somebody. Head shots are worth 100 points. Bar mirrors are worth 1000 points. And off-duty police officers will get you 5000 points. Whoops!

A vanilla-mint shake with chocolate swirl and whipped cream – inspired by the famous McDonalds Shamrock Shake! Perfect for St. Patty’s Day!

Author: Tiffany

Recipe type: Dessert

Serves: 2


  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1-2 cups milk
  • ¬Ω teaspoon mint extract
  • green food coloring
  • chocolate syrup
  • whipped cream
  • optional: sprinkles


1In a blender, combine ice cream, 1 cup milk, and mint extract. Pulse until smooth and creamy. Add milk a cup at a time until desired consistency is reached. (I like mine a little thicker so I’d stick with 1-1/2 cups but if you want it thinner, like a drink- just add more milk!) Drizzle chocolate syrup in desired serving glasses so that it is swirled around the sides (see pictures). Pour shake into glasses. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles if desired. Enjoy!

So Sit back, have a green brew, a treat, and pinch your friends.  You don’t need a leprechaun to get your magic on…just read one of my books!
