Lazy Leprechaun Float Recipe: This Lemon-Lime Irish Float Recipe Is a Refreshing St. Patrick's Day Sip

It's festive and fun and, best of all, ready in less than 5 minutes.

This simple Irish float recipe has just two ingredients – lime sherbet and lemon-lime soda – but you can dress it up with shamrocks, paper straws and fun napkins. Your family will appreciate all that "effort" you put into making St. Patrick's Day extra special (don't worry, we won't tell). Cheers!

  • 2 scoops lime sherbet
  • 10 ounces lemon-lime soda, (more or less, to desired consistency)
  • mint for garnish, if desired

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the lime sherbet into a tall glass or small mason jar.
  2. Slowly fill the glass with lemon-lime soda. Be careful, because it will get fizzy and you don't want it to overflow. If you prefer a smoother drink, stir to combine. If you prefer more of a shake, serve immediately.
  3. Garnish the glass with festive strawsdrink stirrers, shamrocks or even a sprig of mint for garnish, if desired.
