Both of these leprechauns are staples for millennials.

Believe it or not, both of these sweet drinks have been around for decades. Irish coffee began in 1943 near Limerick, Ireland. It involves a carefully-crafted balance of coffee, whiskey, sugar and cream. But McDonald’s rendition of the shamrock shake is in its 50th year. How can you not indulge in that sweet, mint-chocolaty taste?
