Beverage Tracker: Seasonal drinks from McDonald’s, Dunkin’ and P.F. Chang’s China Bistro

Plus new offerings from BurgerFi, Chevy’s Fresh Mex, Cousins Subs, Eggs Up Grill, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, Slater’s 50/50 and Wow Wow Hawaiian lemonade

McDonald’s Shamrock Shake has returned to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day for the 51st year, and it’s joined by a minty McFlurry that was introduced a year ago.

Minty shakes are also on offer at Cousins Subs and Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers. It might be unfair to say that they’re copying the St. Patrick’s Day classic from the Golden Arches, but Freddy’s treat has Oreo cookie pieces, too.

Meanwhile, BurgerFi is celebrating its 10th birthday with a cake shake, Chevys Fresh Mex is celebrating National Margarita Day, Feb. 22, with the Rosé-A-Rita, and Eggs Up Grill is celebrating brunch with a sparkling rosé Mimosa that will be on offer through Mother’s Day.

Dunkin’ has a red velvet cake drink for February, and so does Slater’s 50/50. 

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill has romance-themed cocktails for February, while P.F. Chang’s is celebrating Lunar New Year with a drink called the Red Lantern.

Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonade, for reasons of its own, has chosen winter as the time to offer drinks with cinnamon and apple.
