How to Order McDonald's Shamrock Iced Coffee

The Most Popular New Drink From McDonald's Shamrock Line Wasn't Even Advertised

When we heard about the new additions to McDonald's Shamrock drink menu this year, we were pumped. But it wasn't until we went to our nearest McDonald's to try all the new items that we realized the best one isn't even on the advertised menu. You're looking at the Shamrock Iced Coffee, which is a secret menu item that we managed to discover thanks to an insider tip from the McDonald's employee who made the Shamrock Mocha for us to try (which, by the way, is just as perfect as McDonald's Peppermint Mocha). The employee told us this is the most popular Shamrock drink, aside from the original Shamrock Shake.

The Shamrock Iced Coffee (about $2) did appear on the touchscreen self-ordering kiosk at our local McDonald's, but not every location's standard menu (above the cashiers) may feature this item. Since you might not find this iced coffee on the menu along with the Chocolate Shamrock Shake, Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe, Shamrock Hot Chocolate, and Shamrock Mocha, here's how to order it.

  • Order your preferred size of an iced coffee, and ask to add the McCafé Mint Mocha Flavored Syrup. Depending on what size you order, you'll get two to four pumps mixed into your coffee.
  • You can order it with cream or no cream; just speak up about your preference.

The cold coffee drink is rich, chocolaty, minty, and refreshing. It honestly reminds us Bay Area residents of the (cheaper version of the) Philz Mint Mojito, one of the most popular drinks in San Francisco. Suffice it to say, if you love mint-chocolate anything, you'll want to order this iced coffee every morning, so try out the limited-edition off-menu item while you can.
