Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Acacia’s St. Patrick’s Day Punch.
Shamrock Shakes, McDonald’s version of a mint milkshake, are a St. Patrick’s Day tradition in my household. An image of the almost sickeningly vibrant green shake makes an appearance on the family group chat at least once during the season – and trust me, one is all you need.
This year, I decided to take my St. Patrick’s Day celebrations out of the drive-through and into the bar, thanks to Acacia. The Southside cocktail bar provided TABLE with the recipe to their signature green punch, a much tastier alternative to the Shamrock Shake. Yes, the punch is still green, but the Irish whiskey packs a punch the shake just can’t replicate.
