The Dish: St. Patrick's Day Shake

St Patrick's Day Milkshake from Black Tap NYC

Green beer may have met its match.

Having lived in both Boston and New York, I have never known St. Patrick's Day to be a celebration synonymous with restraint. A cursory glance into any pub sporting a name like Molly Wee or the Tam O'Shanter will likely reveal a roomful of honorary Irishmen and women clutching pints of green beer (and, hours later, their queasy stomachs).

Now if, like me, you prefer a sugar high to a boozy buzz, then the St. Patrick's Day Shake from Black Tap Craft Burgers + Beer ($15) in New York will probably have you doing the jig (and then some). This dessert in a glass, a kelly green (albeit vanilla flavored) drinkable sugar bomb comes with a marshmallow rim, vanilla frosting, gold chocolate coins, a sour gummy rainbow and Lucky Charms.

"It's supposed to look like clouds with a rainbow and pot of gold," remarked Chef Joe Isidori, its creator. "Basically, where a leprechaun would live."
