St Patricks Day Drink

Hey party peeps!

One of our fellow P4P’ers asked me a couple weeks ago for ideas for her child’s classroom. She was in charge of bringing drinks for the class’ St Patrick’s Day party. Since everyone knows it’s a full-blown green day (and I’m not talking about the band), she wanted something in that hue.

I suggested a couple options for a St Patricks Day drink to her but I preferred the green milk suggestion. I know…sounds tasty, huh?

I guess we could call it leprechaun juice.

This is a fun St Patrick’s Day treat for just one child or a whole classroom full. One of the best parts about it? You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen!

Start out with 8 oz or 1 cup of milk. This is for an individual drink. Multiply the amount based on number of drinks. I used Almond Milk and it turned out great. You can, of course, use regular milk too.

Add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the milk. I mixed mine in our magic bullet but you can also use a regular blender for multiple drinks.

Add 1 teaspoon of clear vanilla. Don’t add dark vanilla because it will tint the milk.

You’re going to “tint” the milk with green food coloring. Add 1 to 2 drops of the food coloring.

Mix in the blender or magic bullet until the sugar is dissolved.


I used an old frappuccino bottle for my green milk glass. The “Happy St Patrick’s Day” tag on the bottle are printables I made and am sharing them with you. And then I found the ribbon at the craft store for a fun addition.

Are you a room mom for your kid’s classroom? If so, what are some ideas you’ve done? Tweet me, post to facebook, email me (, Instagram or comment here. I’d love to share your great ideas with all the P4P peeps (giving YOU full credit & a high-five for awesome creativity).

I’ve got some fun things in store coming up in the next few posts…until then…Party On!

  1. Now I’m going to go and drink a bunch of Starbuck’s to have these glasses! Luckily I got a gift card for Starbucks for my birthday! Don’t have to spend my money! Woo hoo! My husband is Irish and so my kids being half Irish and half Italian, we celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day!

    Thank you for the printable!

    • You know…sometimes you just have to do whatcha gotta do! ;p Thanks so much for stopping by Annamaria! Looking forward to checking out your blog. <3 Heidi Rew

  2. My favorite part of this is that you recycled a frappuccino glass for your container. With all of the vanilla frappuccinos that I drink, I think I’ll be having a milkshake party soon… :) Thanks Heidi!

    • Lol…yes…my husband is over all the saved glasses I store in our kitchen. I always tell him that you never know what it could come in handy for! ;p <3 Heidi Rew

  3. Can adults drink this, too? That sounds yummy! :)

  4. What a cute idea! I love it!
