These 15 non-spirited St. Patrick’s Day beverages are sure to put you in the mood to celebrate and ideal for Family Friendly Celebrations so that even the Kids can enjoy the party too!
15 St Patrick’s Day Drinks for ALL the family to enjoy
St Patrick’s Day Smoothies
McDonald’s traditionally serves a delicious Shamrock Smoothie for St Patrick’s Day but as Modern Mom points out the recipe changed in recent years so she’s come up with a Copycat McDonald’s Shamrock Shake that tastes just as it used to.
If you like Key Lime Pie then this Key Lime Pie Smoothie from Healthful Pursuit then this smoothie version is perfect for you or if you are willing to share then the kids as well.
Not all of St Patrick’s Day treats and drinks have to be unhealthy this Shamrock Green Smoothie from Two Healthy Kitchens contains at least one of your required fruit and vegetables for the day plus extra iron.
If you are on a health kick then this Matcha Pear Green Smoothie from Upstate Ramblings contains fruits as well as Matcha Green Tea Powder which is super healthy and good for you.
A fabulous flavour combination pear and ginger (our Cinnamon and Apple Cake can easily be made with Pear and Ginger instead and tastes just as good) and this Ginger Pear Smoothie from Sidewalk Shoes combines those two flavours in a green smoothie perfect for St Patrick’s Day breakfast.
Another super healthy smoothie that contains some extra boosts is this Limy Mint Charm Smoothie from Creative Green Living. The mint and the lime are two of my favourite smells and the are some of the essential oil combinations that I use to boost my mood so I can just imagine how great you feel after drinking this.
This Green Lemonade again from Creative Green Living is refreshing and VERY GREEN. With the recommendation of buying organic and natural ingredients, it would be a great way to kick start your St Patrick’s Day celebrations and give you the energy to keep going all day long.
Vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, superfood containing,sugar-freee and Paleo (well I think I’ve covered everything there) Peppermint Patty Smoothie from The Big Mans World is creamy, cool and delicious as well as being good for you – but maybe we don’t tell the kids that part!
St Patrick’s Day Mocktails
This St. Patrick’s Kid Friendly Tini from Anders Ruff is perfect for kids and taste great without a drop of alcohol inside. I know my green loving eldest who is one of the fussiest eaters ever would be willing to give this a try this year.
Mocktails are great for family parties when the adults like to enjoy a cocktail and this Copycat Xanadew Fiiz from Dessert Now Dinner Later looks just like a St Patrick’s Day cocktail but with none of the alcohol so is perfect for the youngest members of the family.
Favourite St Patrick’s Day Drinks for Kids
If you have some little leprechauns running around the house then whipping up a tray of these Green Kool-Aid Milkshake‘s from Cutefetti will make the perfect St Patrick’s Day Party drinks or desserts for them.
Two flavours that really work together for me – chocolate and mint and this Mint Chocolate Chip Green Smoothie from Sugar, Spice and Family Life combines the two into a perfect St Patrick’s Day Drink for kids and you to enjoy.
These Lime Sherbert Green Floats from Home Cooking Memories would be perfect for my kids. Unlike me, they really enjoy the sourness of limes and will happily drink and eat anything that has them in.
If you are planning a last-minute St Patrick’s Day celebration then this St. Patrick’s Day Green Punch from Thrifty Recipes is one to make. With only 4 ingredients it just takes minutes to make and everyone can enjoy it at the party.
Recommended Products for your St Patrick’s Day Drinks
What is a party if you don’t make those drinks extra special? A little bit of St Patrick’s Day theming can transform a simple glass into the perfect one for a St Patrick’s Day breakfast smoothie. Check out our recommended products below and see which of these will make your family of wannabe lepruchauns happy.
Reusable drinking glasses are ideal and I just love the look and easy of use of Mason Jar style drinking glasses. This St Patrick’s Day Plastic Mason Jar Drinking Glass would be perfect to use this year, wash and bring it out again time and time again. Get a set of the family and then store away till next year and you have something that is extra special to bring out to celebrate.
Do a little something for the environment with swapping your plastic straws for some paper straws for your drinks this St Patrick’s day with this St Patrick’s Day set of straws.
Especially if you are making some of those mocktails above adding some St Patrick’s Day Stirrers is perfect for making them seem even more like a real cocktail.
