If leprechauns had a signature drink, it would undoubtedly be the Lucky Leprechaun milkshake at Sugar Factory. The gargantuan shake pairs vanilla and coffee ice cream with a shot of Jameson whiskey. It’s served in a tall glass slathered in shamrock sprinkles and crowned with rainbow pops, chocolate coins and a mountain of whipped cream for $25. A nonalcoholic version is available for $19. Grab yours throughout the month of March.
