All of the Green Food and Drinks You Can Get at Chain Restaurants For St. Patrick's Day
Hard Rock Cafe St. Paddy's Shake
This limited-time spiked shake will have you feeling lucky whether you're Irish or not. The shake is made with Absolut vanilla vodka blended with creamy vanilla ice cream, Oreo cookies and a touch of mint. To really put the icing on the cake, it is finished with a generous heap of homemade white chocolate whipped cream and some sweet accessories. It's not made for kids, but it sure looks like it is!
Dunkin’s Mint Brownie Donut
Available nationwide through March, Dunkin’ is introducing this new treat to celebrate the holiday. Covered in light green icing, it's a mint chocolate-flavored cake donut stuffed with mint brownie batter and topped with crumbled brownie. Can you say decadent?
Yard House Green Beer
What's more festive than green beer? Grab a pint of the good green stuff at Yard House restaurants on March 17, by request only. Get it by the glass or by the half-yard!
Arby’s Mint Chocolate Shake
Arby's Mint Chocolate Shake is a major seasonal favorite for the brand, and it's back right now in honor of St. Patrick's Day. The shake itself is bright green in color with white vanilla swirls, topped with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle and garnished with Andes candy pieces.
Applebee’s Rainbow Punch
You won't find a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow, but you will find some vodka! The Applebee’s Drink of the Month for March, Rainbow Punch, is a colorful cocktail, bright green in color in honor of leprechan season. A combination of green apple, ginger and lemon flavors, this $2 10-oz. drink comes topped with a rainbow gummy garnish.
McDonald’s Shamrock Shake
You've been living under a (sham)rock if you've never heard of this seasonal shake from McDonald's. The shake first appeared on McDonald's menus in 1970, and fans have been eager to hunt it down ever since. The limited-time-only treat is made with creamy vanilla McDonald's soft serve, blended with a minty syrup and topped with whipped cream. Get it while it's still here!
Dippin’ Dots Cool Mint Crunch
The famous beaded ice cream brand launched their newest flavor just in time for St. Patrick's Day. Refreshing mint ice cream combined with chunks of Oreo cookies, these dots are pastel green in color and available in stores and online now.
Starbucks Matcha Drinks
While Starbucks' Matcha Trio is not technically tied to St. Patrick's Day, these three green drinks are perfect for the season. The coffee chain offers the subtly sweet matcha flavor in a hot latte, iced latte, or Frappuccino form.
Duck Donuts Lucky Duck Assortment
This national made-to-order donut shop is making sure you feel lucky this St. Patrick's Day by offering a green icing and Lucky Charms cereal-covered donut. The treat—aptly named the Lucky Duck Donut—will be available through March 17 at all Duck Donuts locations across the United States.
Brother Jimmy’s Green Chicken Wings
From March 11-17, Brother Jimmy’s will be offering green chicken wings as a special off-the-menu item. It looks pretty crazy, but the bright green sauce actually sounds pretty tasty when you break it down: It's made with yellow mustard, apple cider vinegar, horseradish, mayo, pepper, cayenne, salt, sugar...and some green food coloring, of course. The saucy wings will cost you $12 for a basket, or $22 for a bucket of 20.
Dairy Queen Mint Oreo Blizzard
