There's an exciting new giveaway for McDonald's fans this season. To make this spring extra lucky, you could win a Golden Shamrock Shake cup to hold your minty green McFlurry. Here's how to win a Golden Shamrock Shake from McDonald's for a St. Patrick's Day celebration.

The fast food chain introduced the new Golden Shamrock Shake on Tuesday, Feb. 25, after releasing the legendary Shamrock Shake and the new Oreo Shamrock McFlurry to restaurants nationwide on Wednesday, Feb. 19. The new offering isn't a twist on the actual shake recipe, but it will allow you to sip if from a luxurious AF cup specifically designed to hold a minty green McFlurry. The blinged-out cup is hand-crafted from high-polish 18-karat gold and is decorated with precious stones. There is a whopping total of 150 stones on the exterior: 50 green emeralds and 50 white diamonds to celebrate a half-century of minty green goodness, as well as 50 yellow diamonds in each of the Golden Arches to represent its years of being a fan-favorite treat.

You can try your hand at winning the cup during McDonald's exclusive giveaway. From Tuesday, Feb. 25 through Friday, March 6 at 11:59 p.m. local time, fans who purchase any size Shamrock Shake or Oreo Shamrock McFlurry via Mobile Order & Pay in the McDonald's App will automatically be entered to win the Golden Shamrock Shake.
