I could go for a Smarock shake right now
@cathy3807 I am for sure getting one on the way home! It's almost warm enough not to totally freeze when drinking one ;)
@Siofan: Yup they do, I saw a commercial the other day!
The Shamrock Smoothie sounds refreshing, might need to remember that recipe for the summer. The Saint Pat's-tini has me craving a Shamrock Shake from McDonald's, do they still do those?
The Irish Frog looks fun!
Man, they all look fantastic. That Saint Pat's tini, though, I don't know ... looks a lot like Mylanta.
I'd definitely go for that Saint Pat's-tini too!
Wow, The St.Pat's-inis looks so good!!
I'm a vodka lemonade kind of girl, so that Sparkling Shamrock looks super yummy to me!
